Physiotherapy

The Montefiore Hospital is supported by experienced physiotherapists from Radius Healthcare who will help patients going through surgery with their recovery.

As well as helping you get back on your feet, our physiotherapists will also take you through an exercise regime, specific to your operation. Exercise is a very important part of your recovery and you should practice your exercise regime regularly, as guided by your physiotherapist.

The physiotherapist will also ensure you are safe with a range of everyday activities, such as getting in and out of bed, chairs and toilets and talk through how you are going to cope at home. We will also offer advice on how to progress your mobility, exercises, pain and swelling management.

Once you are safe to go home, our physiotherapists will discuss arrangements for any follow up physiotherapy that may be necessary, depending on the procedure and your consultant’s preferences.
