Preparing for Surgery at ShechterCare®

Being Well-Informed

At ShechterCare®, we understand that undergoing surgery can be a daunting experience. That's why we offer a comprehensive pre-operative evaluation to ensure you are well-prepared and informed. During your visit, our dedicated team will take the time to thoroughly explain the details of your surgery, discuss its potential impact on your body's function, and conduct essential measurements of your upper and lower extremities. This crucial step helps us monitor and compare changes, particularly for lymphedema, ensuring a tailored approach to your care.

Reducing Anxiety, Enhancing Recovery

We believe that a well-prepared patient is a more relaxed and confident patient. Our pre-operative visits are designed to not only decrease your anxiety but also to streamline your post-operative care. By obtaining detailed measurements, assessing your range of motion, strength, and functional independence levels, we equip ourselves with the necessary data to help you get back to your life as swiftly and safely as possible after surgery.

You Are Not Alone

Navigating the journey of cancer diagnosis and treatment, whether you're in the pre- or post-operative stage, can feel overwhelming. But with ShechterCare®, you're never alone. For those in the pre-operative phase, we offer therapeutic and reformative mobility treatments. These interventions are crucial in combating muscle loss during the post-op resting stage and in preparing your body for the best possible recovery.

A Consolation and
a Commitment to Care

Before your surgical procedure, we provide a comprehensive consolation that includes informative education on post-operative care and addresses any concerns you might have about the next steps in your treatment and recovery journey.
