Video: Recovery Process After Surgery

In most cases, the recovery process for hand and wrist surgery is rather quick. In the more common procedures, the recovery process may involve a bandage for protection and/or a splint for stabilization. Low-dose pain medication is usually sufficient for managing the recovery pain.

Keeping the hand and wrist elevated as much as possible, keeping the bandage clean and dry and using ice and mild pain relievers when needed are all ways to promote healing and handle the recovery process smoothly.
