Dr. Hardesty will provide you with detailed instructions for pre-operative and post-operative care. The amount of recovery time varies between patients based on the procedures that they undergo. Many patients are able to return to daily activities within several days and returning to non-strenuous activities and work within weeks. Most patients can return to exercise routines within six weeks without restrictions. Patients will be given compression garments, medication for pain and an option of having a non-narcotic pain pump during the healing process.
