Postoperative Guidelines

  • Begin active motion of your fingers immediately.
  • You may remove your dressing 5 days after surgery.
  • Sutures will be removed at your postoperative visit which is scheduled 8-14 days after your surgery and will be on your discharge paperwork.
  • Hand Therapy for gentle active massage and finger range of motion will only be ordered if needed.
  • After your first postoperative visit is complete, follow up is usually not necessary unless you or your surgeon has concerns.
  • 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.
