What does the microscopic decompression postoperative care imply?

The postoperative care starts right after the surgery and implies different precautions and exercises.

Your medical team will work closely with you to help you recover fast. Therefore, we will create a rehabilitation program based on your specific post-operative needs.

Most patients who undergo microscopic decompression are required to wear a corset for the first two weeks after the operation. The corset will protect and sustain your back and help you return to your activities as soon as possible.

After this period, you will start a physiotherapy program with a specialist.
