What are some things I can do to optimize my outcome after surgery?

Going through formal preoperative physical therapy or “prehab” improves your conditioning prior to surgery, leaving you stronger going in, and making you stronger during recovery. Another way to optimize your surgery and its outcome is to control your medical conditions. This includes managing blood sugars: Usually, a patient must have an A1C value of less than 7.0 to have the most successful surgery. Any cardiac issues must be controlled as well.
