What to Expect During Recovery

Understanding the recovery process is crucial for patients considering the Minuteman® Procedure. While recovery times may vary depending on the specific condition, Woodlands Pain aims to provide patients with a smooth and comfortable recovery experience.

Immediate Recovery

After the Minuteman® Procedure, patients are typically monitored in a recovery area to ensure their stability. The medical team will provide instructions for post-procedure care, including pain management techniques and any necessary restrictions on physical activity.

Discharge and Post-Procedure Care

Once cleared by the medical team, patients will be discharged with detailed instructions for at-home care. It’s essential to follow these instructions diligently to promote a successful recovery. Woodlands Pain’s team will be available to answer any questions or concerns that may arise during the recovery period.

Long-Term Recovery

While the Minuteman® Procedure offers a shorter recovery time compared to traditional surgical options, it’s essential to remember that recovery is a gradual process. Patients may experience some discomfort and limitations in the immediate post-procedure period, but as the body heals, these effects should subside.

Woodlands Pain’s team will provide guidance on post-procedure exercises, lifestyle modifications, and pain management techniques to support the long-term recovery process. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.
