On the day of surgery, the entire OR team takes care of your well-being including the surgeon, anaesthetist and nurses. Depending on the age of the patient and previous illnesses, the patient will be transferred to a special monitoring station (intermediate care or ICU) for 24 hours or usually to the normal ward. If you feel fit, you can sit up on the day of the operation and briefly stand on your own. The next day, mobilization begins with physiotherapy. The inpatient stay depends on the patients recovery and usually lasts 2-5 days. When you leave the clinic you are independently mobile and ready for further physiotherapy treatment or rehab.
