How long will I have to be off work after my surgery?
Many factors go into determining what recovery time will be after surgery. Typically, patients need to be off work 2-4 weeks for carpal tunnel surgery and 6-8 weeks after fracture repair. Dr. Friedrich or Dr. Poag will be able to give you an estimate after visiting with you at your consultation.
