Are you in Shape for Surgery?

Surgery puts stress on your body, so the healthier you are, the better you’ll handle it.

Dr Alex Degan, GP at Mid Devon Medical Practice, and Karl Trimble, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust, discuss the importance of being in shape for surgery.

 

Improving your general health and wellbeing greatly improves how effective the surgery will be, shortens how long it will take you to recover and significantly reduces the risk of complications.

 

Any steps you can take to eat a healthy diet, maintain a healthy weight and control your blood sugars, reduce your smoking, alcohol intake or substance use, and get enough sleep will benefit you.
