At PeerWell, we advocate for PreHab before elective surgery. This means actively getting your body, mind and environment the most prepared possible for surgery day. Counting down to surgery by completing the daily exercises and lessons that will most impact your surgery outcome and recovery isn’t revolutionary, but is finally becoming common practice.
