Following an endoscopic disc surgery procedure at Iprenburg Spine Clinic, you usually regain mobility two hours after surgery. At this point you will be able to go home pain free.
Most patients can go back to work within three to six weeks after surgery, although this may vary depending on the nature of their occupation. You can begin physiotherapy approximately six weeks after surgery. It is important to wait for at least six weeks, as this will significantly reduce the likelihood of experiencing recurrence of the symptoms and early relapse.
There is a very small risk of complications after surgery, but we make sure to minimise the risks by offering appropriate guidance after surgery. One week after surgery, we will get in touch with you to discuss the progress you are making during the recovery stage. Three weeks after surgery, we will ask you to send us an e-mail with an update on your progress, and you will receive a response by phone or e-mail. Approximately six weeks after surgery our anesthesiologist will contact your once again by phone.
Imagine how happy it will make you to realise that the pain is gone, that you get up every day feeling no pain at all, that you can walk and cycle again, and that you are able to actively participate in your family life once again. You feel that you have a fully functional body, and it’s fantastic.
