Post Operative Care
post operation
Regardless what type of spine surgery you have had, it's important to us that you practice good postoperative care after your surgery.

The goal of postoperative care is to help you prevent complications such as infection, to promote healing of your incision, and to help speed you on the road to recovery.

To this end, Dr. Blankenship has put together the following postoperative care instructions for you. (See links on the right side of this page). By following them to the letter, you'll greatly improve your chances for a successful outcome.
