American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons Clinical Consensus Statement: Perioperative Management.

American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons® Clinical Consensus Statement: Perioperative Management.

Meyr AJ, Mirmiran R, Naldo J, Sachs BD, Shibuya N. J Foot Ankle Surg. 2017 Mar - Apr;56(2):336-356. doi: 10.1053/j.jfas.2016.10.016.

The American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons convened an expert panel to develop a clinical consensus statement on issues associated with perioperative management of foot and ankle surgical patients. The statement starts with an Executive Summary that offers a concise list of over 20 recommendations. The document also offers additional details on each consensus statement related to preoperative considerations, direct perioperative considerations, and postoperative considerations.

I find it amazing that there is essentially no mention of supervised rehabilitation or physical therapy in these recommendations. The term "rehabilitation" appears once in the document as part of the term "rehabilitation facility" in the context of a length stay in a rehabilitation facility as a potential adverse event. Evidently the surgeons on this panel did not see supervised rehabilitation as having any role in the post-operative management of their surgically treated post-operative patients.
