Blood Clots

Blood clots can occur after any operation but are more likely to occur following lower limb orthopaedic operations. To reduce the risk of blood clots, you’ll be encouraged get up and walk around as soon after your operation as possible, often on the same day. We will also assess your risk of developing a blood clot and, in some cases, you’ll be prescribed blood thinning medication. You’ll also be given some foot and ankle exercises immediately after surgery and will also be advised to wear special socks for six weeks after surgery.
