Pre-Surgery Rehabilitation Program

Ellis Physical Therapy helps patients improve their outcomes after surgery through a pre-surgery rehabilitation program. Research shows that if patients rehab their injury prior to surgery they will have a more successful recovery.

“Fifty percent of outcome success is due to the surgeon, and the other 50 percent is due to the patient’s commitment to recovery – starting with pre-hab,” says Vonda Wright, MD, assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Sports Medicine.

Ellis Physical Therapy offers a free consultation to patients to educate and give them the tools to have better results. The consult is tailored to each individual patient based on needs and diagnoses. The areas we primarily focus on are symptoms, ROM, strengthening, education on assistive devices (walker, cane, crutches, etc.), and what to expect after surgery. An exercise & ticket program are combined to allow access to our gym at a low rate.

Some of the advantages of pre-surgery rehabilitation:

  • A decrease need for inpatient rehab after surgery
  • Quicker recovery time
  • Reduces symptoms and improves function prior to surgery
  • Build confidence and understanding of expectations after surgery
  • Decrease financial burden
