Some of the commonly followed routines with the patients during post operative PT care in  Distal Femoral Osteotomy( hope to be updated by someone using different and new routines for the same):
  • Elevate the operative leg to chest level whenever possible to decrease swelling
  • Do not place pillows under knees (i.e. do not maintain knee in a flexed or bent position), but rather place pillows under foot/ankle
  • Not to bear any more than 20-30% of your weight on the operative leg unless instructed otherwise by physician
  • Do not have prolonged periods of standing or walking during the first 2 weeks following surgery
  • Avoid long periods of sitting (without leg elevated) or long distance traveling for 2 weeks
  • NO driving
  • May return to sedentary work ONLY or school 3-4 days after surgery, if pain is tolerable
  • Brace should be worn fully extended at all times except for exercises If doing straight leg raises, keep brace on and locked in full extension
  • Begin Cryotherapy immediately after surgery very 2 hours for 20 minutes daily until your first post-operative visit
  • Remember to keep leg elevated to level of chest while icing
EXERCISE DURING INITIAL POST OPERATIVE DAYS.
  • A continuous passive motion from the first post-operative day for 2 hours/twice a day ranging from 0° of extension (straightening) to 40° of flexion, increase flexion by 5-10° (stay within a comfortable level) daily to a maximum of 90°
  • Begin exercises 24 hours after surgery (heel slides, quad sets, and ankle pumps – straight leg raises with brace on)
  • Discomfort and knee stiffness is normal for a few weeks following surgery
  • Complete exercises 3-4 times daily
  • Do ankle pumps continuously throughout the day to reduce the possibility of a blood clot in calf
