RECOVERY STAY(TM) is only available to patients of Edinger Surgical Options (ESO)
ESO created RECOVERY STAY(TM) program to provide round-the-clock care after orthopedic surgery. During the days of RECOVERY STAY(TM) the patient benefits from the consistent, professional care of experienced nurses, and takes part in physical rehabilitation sessions with HEAL Integrative Veterinary Center. This RECOVERY STAY(TM) program helps reduce recovery and healing time and improves outcome. These immediate after-care services include manual therapy for muscle and joints, weight bearing exercises, icing, and laser therapy. For patients staying more than one week, they will have the opportunity to visit our state-of-the-art therapy exercise room. Patients staying after their sutures are removed will have the opportunity to be introduced to hydrotherapy in our AquaPaws Underwater Treadmill. Additional therapies such as pulsed electromagnetic therapy, acupuncture, neuromuscular electrical stimulation, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation are available by special arrangement.
At the end of RECOVERY STAY (TM) or at 2-4 weeks post surgery if a patient doesn't stay at ESO after surgery, the therapists will provide by appointment a 30 minute evaluation session to teach families the exercises, massages, and stretches to help their pet heal and strengthen. Recommendations for follow up care will be given based upon the individual needs of each pet.
