Pre-Surgical Rehabilitation and Wellness
The Pre-surgical Wellness Program is a 16- week comprehensive rehabilitation program designed to maximize your post-surgical results. You will be paired with a dedicated pre-surgical rehabilitation team consisting of a physical therapist, registered dietitian and exercise specialist in order to optimize your health prior to undergoing surgery. More than just a weight-loss plan, the intent of this program is to address the behavioral and physical roadblocks preventing the participant from making the necessary lifestyle modifications in order to achieve a maintainable and healthy way of living. We believe that this is a continuous journey and our program will guide you from the initial phases of pre-surgical rehabilitation to your transition to a home or gym-based exercise program after your recovery.
- (6) One-on-one visits with a licensed physical therapist to evaluate and develop a customized exercise routine based on the individual’s physical impairments and activity restrictions. Recommendations for injury treatment and prevention will be provided throughout the course of the program to ensure that exercise prescription and rehabilitation is both safe and effective. Warm water aquatic therapy available for those who qualify.
- (8) One-on-one visits with a registered dietitian are included to allow participants to individually learn and develop the skills necessary to establish and maintain healthy nutrition choices. Sessions will be held every other week and will include the advanced education and emotional support necessary to be successful in achieving your targeted results

These classes will be held every other week and will include topics such as meal planning, grocery shopping and reading nutritional labels, recipe analysis, psychology of exercise and healthy restaurant choices. They are also intended to allow program participants to meet, discuss the topics and develop a sense of accountability throughout the 16 weeks.
