Movements such as bending, reaching, kneeling, and twisting can be painful after surgery. Assistive devices are designed to make life easier for you as you transition back to normal life. Everyone is different and there is a wide range of approaches to assistive devices.
We recommend all patients obtain a walker for assistance with walking after your procedure. It will be important that you obtain a walker within the next couple of weeks, before your procedure.
