The Center for Gait and Movement Analysis (CGMA) has developed, in conjunction with the Physical Therapy Department at Children's Hospital Colorado, a set of protocols for patients’ postoperative care. We feel it is important for the promotion of quality care to provide each physical therapist and each patient with post-surgery rehabilitation guidelines to optimize the outcome of their surgeries.
Keep in mind that these are only guidelines. Please continue to use your best clinical judgment, and call the referring physician if any unusual symptoms occur.
