Wound Care After Joint Replacement Surgery
There will be no sutures to be removed after a total knee or hip replacement as Mr Bridle uses dissolvable stitches.
Once the dressing is off, then it can be left exposed and the wound can get wet and there will be no issues.
Mr Bridle advises his patients that bio oil or moisturising cream can be applied to the wound to promote better scar healing if they want.
If you have any further questions or wish to arrange a consultation with Mr Simon Bridle to talk about the procedure in more depth, please call 020 8947 9524 to arrange a consultation.
