In the Intensive Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Unit, also known as the Functional Recovery and Rehabilitation Unit, patients with an indication for intensive rehabilitation treatment (code 56) are admitted as in-patients or day hospital patients, in agreement with the Regional Health System.
It mainly treats patients with the after-effects of orthopaedic operations such as:
- Hip and knee prostheses
- Intramedullary nail
- Vertebral syphoplasty
- Tendon and ligament injuries
Patients with orthopaedic problems can benefit from the most innovative rehabilitation techniques and the support of highly specialised and qualified staff using the latest robomechatronic equipment.
In our facility, traditional rehabilitation techniques are combined with the use of highly innovative equipment.
The rehabilitation approach is intensive multidisciplinary and involves the joint work of various professional figures: the doctor, physiotherapist, nurse and, where clinically indicated, the psychologist and social worker. The rehabilitation process is aimed at achieving the greatest possible recovery of the patient’s autonomy, through an individual rehabilitation programme drawn up by the team at the time of admission.
