That might be more about preventing atrophy than about healing your surgical site. Hard to say. Doctors, especially surgeons, have not been known for their focus on diet and nutrition and holistic medicine.

Well, I was told that the goal was to prevent blood clots, improve mobility, accelerate healing and promote general well-being. I was given different information sheets that included recommendations on diet in preparation and after surgery as well a special exercise routine. I was offered psychological support before one of my surgeries. So I’m glad to say that my doctors have a holistic approach.
