Textbook of Physiotherapy in Surgical Conditions

by Pushpal K Mitra

Recovering from a surgery begins from the day after. It is a process that can be both physically and emotionally challenging. The postoperative care focuses on minimizing complications after the surgery, so that the patient can resume normal life at the earliest. Apart from inputs from the doctor in-charge of the case, successful preoperative and postoperative care involves the inputs from nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists, working as a part of the surgical team. This volume is designed to provide the students and practitioners of nursing, physical therapy and occupational therapy with an insight into various aspects of surgeries. There is detailed explanation on the indications and contraindications of surgery, outline of surgical procedures adopted and fundamentals of preoperative and postoperative care. The first two chapters explain the role and scope of physical rehabilitation after surgery and principles of pre- and postoperative physiotherapy. Next chapters present the role of physiotherapy in abdominal surgeries, cardiothoracic surgeries, breast surgeries, and in burn and plastic surgeries. The last chapter is on the importance of physiotherapy in women’s health.
