Rapid Recovery Rehabilitation Program

van der Rijt Orthopaedics rapid recovery rehabilitation program has a very positive impact in assisting patients post operative recovery and rehabilitation.  The key principals of the program are:

  1. Patient education, a fully informed knowing and trained patient understands what is occurring in their treatment and is better suited to actively engage and participate in their pain management and post operative recovery with the aim of rehabilitation to normal function. 
  2. High Quality Pain Relief.  High quality post operative pain relief is essential to assist patients in their early post operative exercise and rehabilitation.  High quality pain relief is important to enhance the patient’s post operative experience and recovery.  Dr van der Rijt works closely with his Anaesthetic Colleagues in tailor making a post operative pain management program for individual patients.
  3. High quality pain relief, simultaneously avoiding side effects in nausea, allows the patient to engage in early recovery exercise, this reduces the risks of post operative complications and speeds the early and long term recovery.
  4. Minimally Invasive Surgical Approaches decreases patient’s pain experience, facilitates muscle recovery and helps maintain patient function and facilitate rehabilitation exercise. 
  5. Bone Conserving Operation such as Birmingham hip resurfacing, necks bearing femoral arthroplasty and knee Repicci hemiarthroplasty or total knee resurfacing conserve patient’s bone stock, help maintain normal anatomy, joint proprioception and greatly facilitate rehabilitation.
  6. Continued close supervision and physiotherapy supervised rehabilitation exercise in the post operative period.
