In brief: Assistance

When I have patients who live alone and are preparing to have spinal fusion surgery, it is wise to consider the aftercare situation.
If there is a poor support system available to be able to go home, options such as in-patient rehab or nursing may need to be arranged (preferably before the surgery). Depending upon the surgery, home care assistance may suffice.
