One of the most effective predictors of success in recovery is the patient's active participation in the process. For those with planned surgeries, preparation beforehand is key. Those who work on getting stronger before surgery, and who are already in the habit of doing prescribed exercises, do the best in resuming normal activities. Some patients may require a stay at a nursing facility or the use of adaptive equipment such as a walker. The health care team will determine what's needed based on your individualized needs, providing the best changes for your success.
