Lana Life Care provides excellent post-surgical care for patients who are recovering from surgery. The care we provide depends on the type of surgery and the patient’s health history. Our professionally qualified and Dubai Health Authority (DHA) certified and experienced nurses can provide you with adequate care and all the medical assistance required as per our medical director’s interaction with your doctor.

Post-surgical care mainly aims to keep the surgical incision safe from infection and reinstate patients’ health to the pre-surgery state through expert care and assistance.
Post-surgical or postoperative care begins right after the surgery. The duration of the care might be based on how long you might take to recover from the trauma. At times it might last only during the hospital stay, or at times it might get extended even after you get discharged. After careful preparation, Lana Life Care will talk to your doctor about the postoperative care involved so that both the patient and the caretaker can be prepared and get a glimpse of what to expect after the surgery, understand how long you will have to be at the hospital, the side effects of the surgery, possible complications, etc.

Taking care of your loved ones at home might be easy, but it involves an equal amount of risk as proper pain management, and medication might not be possible. This is where Lana Life Care experts come in. Our trained experts will ensure that along with recovering physically; the patient has also recovered mentally from the trauma or surgery.
Our professional caregivers understand that the initial days after the surgery can be really tough.

Also, bedsores which are common after surgeries, might cause severe complications if left unattended. Our expert caregivers will ensure that the patient is given utmost care and comfort during our services.
Benefits Of Professional Post-Operative Care
We can divide postoperative recovery into five stages:
- Pre-recovery – This is a stage before the surgery and includes the patient’s physical, mental and emotional preparation for the surgery and postoperative recovery.
- Early recovery – Right after the surgery, the patient recovers from the anaesthesia, gains back motor activity and protective reflexes.
- Intermediate recovery – the phase in which coordination and psychological function normalise and the person is home-ready.
- Later recovery – the patient is discharged from the hospital and regains the presurgical form – physical, mental and emotional. This phase might take from hours to days, depending on the surgery performed.
- Long-term recovery – Restoration of functional and cognitive abilities. This phase might take up to 3-6 months.
