Post-Op Incisions

Post-operative incisions refer to surgical wounds made on the body during a surgical procedure.

Post-Op Incisions

Proper care of post-op incisions is essential for promoting healing, preventing infection, and minimizing complications.

We provide instructions on how to clean the incision. This may involve using mild soap and water or a prescribed cleansing solution. Gently pat the area dry with a clean towel or sterile gauze.

We will advise you on whether the incision needs to be covered with a sterile dressing or if it can be left uncovered. If dressing changes are necessary, follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider regarding frequency and technique.
