Should I schedule post op physical therapy visits prior to surgery?

  1. For most surgeries, this is recommended. If you are unsure, please contact my assistant.
  2. If post op PT is recommended, someone from our office should contact you prior to your surgery to arrange for visits to one of our facilities. If they do not, please call our main number, 703-435-6604, to schedule.
  3. If you are planning to go to a PT facility other than ours, please schedule this to begin two days after your surgery, unless we discussed otherwise.
  4. I will provide you an individualized physical therapy prescription on the day of your surgery that will be specific for the surgical findings and procedure performed.
