PIQUE’s founder, Dr. Nell Smircina, has extensively studied the effects of surgery on the body, and how acupuncture can drastically improve the outcomes of recovery. We encourage any patient looking to optimize their recovery process to book a consultation directly with Dr. Nell before your surgical procedure if at all possible.
We are here to make your recovery as streamlined and comfortable as possible. We coordinate with your surgeon or current care team during this important time for healing. For optimal recovery, planning is extremely important.
Common issues after surgery addressed by Post-Surgical Acupuncture:
- Side effects from anesthesia
- Memory loss
- Shifts in mood
- Scar tissue overgrowth
- Wound healing
- Development of dependence on opioids or other pain medication
- General recovery time
