Postoperative Guidelines

  • You may remove your dressing 5 days after surgery, cover incision with a Band-Aid until your postoperative appointment.

  • It is recommended that you sleep with your elbow straight for 4 weeks after surgery for the best outcome.
  • 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.
