How to get the best results from orthopedic surgery
We want our patients to get the best from their surgery. Much of the work happens in rehabilitation. We have world-class physical therapists here at The Stone Clinic. Together we bring the perspective of understanding both the injury that the patient had and all the different ways we can connect with that patient to help them become fitter, faster, and stronger than they were before they got hurt. We encourage patients to think of themselves as an “athlete in training” and not a “patient in rehab”. Pro athletes are in the gym a couple of times a day, they optimize their nutrition, they optimize their range of motion and their soft tissue, they optimize all the parts that go into making them a world-class athlete. Patients who adopt that approach are the ones that do the best. It's really a bargain between the surgeon and the patient and the bargain is that the surgeon gives their best effort surgically and all the skills and all the resources and the patient gives their utmost to make all those tools work well and bring their own body and their mind to rehab every day, training every day.
