Orthopedic Day is an innovative outpatient program that immediately
follows joint replacement surgery. With Orthopedic Day treatment,
individuals receive intensive therapy for seven consecutive days,
typically beginning on day two after surgery, and recuperate in the
comfort of their own home at night. Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital takes a creative
approach to effective orthopedic rehab, with patients seeing
noticeable results quickly.
Orthopedic Day: Our Approach
Orthopedic Day offers personalized care from a team of clinicians
dedicated to helping each patient gain strength, restore function and
return to an active life. Patients rest at home during the evening,
facilitating a faster recovery. During the day, they participate in
three-hour therapy sessions that blend the following services:
daily support group activities
Patients are most frequently referred into the Orthopedic Day program
after joint replacement surgery, such as a single knee replacement. The
average patient is 62 years old. After one week of treatment, patients
typically see a 16 percent increase in functional ability. Gait speeds
increase an average of 42 percent to a rate that reflects a
significantly lower risk of falling.
