Following a challenging surgery like a hip or knee replacement, proper recovery is critical. When you don’t recover correctly, you can easily lose your full range of motion, have limited mobility, and are prone to even more injuries and complications. There are several options for recovery, regardless of the surgery, you may experience.
The Recovery Inn is one option for many patients in the Fox Valley area (Green Bay to Oshkosh) that creates a much smoother and more enjoyable recovery. The Recovery Inn offers a dozen suites for patients with all the necessities for proper and comfortable healing. Here are four reasons why patients should consider this facility following an orthopedic surgery.
1. Medical Staff is Always Available
Your orthopedic surgeon is onsite and ready to answer any questions, address any concerns, and provide medical assistance when necessary. Patients who may need extra assistance following joint replacement surgery or may need to be monitored for complications can have the assistance available at the facility. Additionally, the Recovery Inn’s onsite medical director is a primary care specialist who monitors your care throughout your stay.
2. Physical Therapy is Available Daily
For most surgeries, you will need physical therapy shortly after the surgery. Physical therapy can help strengthen the muscles and the surgical site. It can also help gain full range of motion and speed up the recovery process. When at home, you will learn a variety of exercises you must perform daily, but when at the facility, you have physical therapists right there who are able to help you each day and assist you throughout these critical stages of your recovery. The Recovery Inn’s physical therapy gym is steps away from all healing suites and is staffed by physical and occupational therapists from Advanced Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine (APTSM), the area’s largest independent practice. APTSM has earned recognition from the American Physical Therapy Association as the top private practice in the nation.
3. Comfortable Environment
Following a painful and intense surgery, many patients just want the comfort of their own home. The Recovery Inn provides the next best thing. Each room features the necessities you need to recover quickly and comfortably. Each room boasts motorized lift chairs and large windows. There are also many of the amenities you may enjoy at home including Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and closets for all your belongings. While some of the aforementioned items might seem standard, it is when you experience the environment in totality that you fully understand the uniqueness of the Recovery Inn. Stated simply, it feels more like a hotel than a rehabilitation facility.
4. Great Food
During recovery, the last thing you need to think about is where your next meal is going to come from. At the Recovery Inn, there is a full-service restaurant, making it easy to receive each of your three meals. You can order and have the food delivered to your room or you can move your body and enjoy a change of scenery by visiting the restaurant. Let’s face it: food is important. The Corner Café has hired local talent that really knows food, and patient comments attest to the restaurant quality of the dishes offered from an extensive menu.
If you or your loved one needs a little extra help while recovering from a knee or hip replacement surgery, the Recovery Inn should be at the top of your list to make sure you receive any necessary medical assistance, daily physical therapy, great food, and a comfortable sleeping environment. It truly is the best way to recover in the Fox Valley.
Recovery Inn is located on the campus of the Orthopedic & Sports Institute in Appleton (OSI). This skilled nursing facility was the first orthopedics-only recovery facility in the nation attached to a surgery center. At OSI, you can have your surgery and rehab without leaving the building.
