Most upper limb procedures are performed as day case operations. This means that you will go home on the same day as the operation.
You will require someone to take you home safely after the operation.
More complex procedures, such as joint replacement surgery, may require overnight admission.
You will be seen by a physiotherapist before going home to explain the rehabilitation process to ensure your recovery starts immediately.
Our team at Melbourne Arm Clinic work closely with your anaesthetist to make sure you are comfortable after the operation and that your pain is controlled. We will organise medication for you to go home with to ensure you remain comfortable.
Our practice nurse is available for any post operative care after your discharge. For any additional questions after your surgery, please contact us.
