Physiotherapist, B Phys T (UP) 1986

With 30 years of experience in pre- and post-operative patient care and rehabilitation, my role in the treatment of patients undergoing abdominal and/or combination surgery is the following:  

  • Teaching the correct way of mobilising in and out of bed
  • Early mobilisation post-operatively to prevent complications like deep vein thrombosis
  • Chest physiotherapy and breathing exercises to maximise lung expansion post-operatively
  • Circulatory exercises to improve blood circulation and minimise swelling
  • Making sure that the patient understands the importance of following Dr Landman's post-operative protocol at home    

Physiotherapy compliments your surgical procedure and adds towards your successful outcome.
