Post-operative Guidelines 

  • Keep your dressing dry and intact until your first postoperative appointment. This will be scheduled 8-14 days after your surgery and will be on your discharge paperwork.
  • Your splint and sutures will be removed at your first postoperative appointment. 
  • You may be placed in a removable thumb spica splint for comfort only after your first visit. 
  • Please remember these outlines are guidelines only. Your care may differ from the typical outlines provided. Please talk to your surgeon or your surgeon’s nurse or medical assistant if you have any questions about your postoperative care. If you have any questions, please call our office at (314) 514-3500.
