After your surgery

Our physiotherapy service will help mobilise you after your vascular surgery. Early activity and exercise is a really important and it is a treatment to prevent post-operative complications and maximise the benefits from surgery.  Exercise is encouraged several times a day and will keep you strong and as safe as possible for a prompt discharge home. Please bring in sensible slippers or flat shoes for walking around in the hospital. The ward can loan or provide walking aids as required.
