Post-operative recovery from spinal surgery

can be involved—from issues of nutrition to ambulation to surgical incision care. Nurses from Jill Tucker Nursing are experienced in caring for patients rehabilitating from orthopedic surgeries, starting by accompanying patients home from the hospital, assuring their comfort and overseeing a thorough recovery program. Keeping patients ambulating speeds healing, encourages blood flow and reduces the possibility of blood clots. Surgical dressing, stitches and incisions are monitored as healing progresses. And nurses can work with PT professionals to help patients build strength and increase movement.
