Postoperative rehabilitation

If you have just undergone an arthroscopic or classic knee, hip, shoulder, or spine surgery, or you had a knee or hip endoprosthesis implanted you are only halfway there.  What comes next is postoperative rehabilitation.  Quality and timely rehabilitation after surgery is extremely important because it determines both the speed and the ultimate quality of your total recovery.

The postoperative medical rehabilitation and physical therapy programme at Terme Selce Health Clinic is conducted according to the DRVB Method.  The method is individualized, determined in cooperation with the surgeon and is under daily specialist supervision.

The application of a number of state-of-the-art procedures at Terme Health Clinic provides the most complex and most competent patient-personalised care.

We implement postoperative rehabilitation for conditions after: 

  • Operative treatment of extremity and spinal fractures
  • Arthroscopic knee, shoulder, hip, TC or elbow surgery
  • Reconstruction of the ligaments of the knees and other joints
  • Reconstruction of the meniscus
  • Surgical treatment of cartilage, knee, hip, TC, elbow, shoulder microfractures
  • Meniscus and cartilage transplants
  • Corrective osteotomy
  • Knee, hip, TC, elbow, shoulder endoprosthesis implantation
  • Spinal surgery
  • Multiple trauma
  • Extremity transplantation
  • Extremity amputation
  • Nerve injury and minimal invasive neurosurgical procedures
  • Bone and joint tumour surgery and tumour endoprosthesis implantation
  • Reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery
  • Rehabilitation of burns

In addition to continuous monitoring, the implemented therapies are aimed at faster reduction of swelling and oedema, more rapit healing, return of function and achieving the physiological range of movement of joints, the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle or spine.  From the first day of the stay at the clinic special attention is paid to muscle tone and strength, which are weakened after surgery and impede recovery.  Check-ups are performed once a week, and ward rounds are conducted every day.  Postoperative rehabilitation lasts 2-3 weeks on the average, and sometimes a bit longer depending on the operation and clinical condition.
