Your surgeon may prescribe post-surgical incision management by R3, especially if you are at higher risk for developing an infection or for having your incision open up. Risk factors include obesity, diabetes, weakened immune system or a history of heavy smoking.
We will monitor the incision for signs of infection or compromised healing and take immediate steps if a problem is detected. Early intervention is crucial to stopping the problem before it becomes a serious health threat. R3 specialists will change dressings, clean incisions, apply topical medications and monitor drainage tubes as needed during the healing process.
