Surgery Recovery Time

Azalea Orthopedics receives orthopedic questions through the Ask An Orthopedist page and provides answers from Azalea doctors! 

Question: I suffered an accident that involves avulsion fractures of my LCL and Bicep Femoris Tendon.  My surgery has been delayed for 3 weeks so far because of workmans comp.  How does this affect my recovery and how long should my recovery take?

Answer: Ideally the surgery will be done before 6 weeks from the time of injury – after this it gets technically more difficult.  Healing takes 6 weeks following the surgery, rehab another 6-8 weeks after that.
