Post Surgery Boost

A post surgery boost with IV therapy may be necessary for people who are recovering from a surgical operation.

What is IV therapy for a post surgery boost?

A post surgery boost may be necessary for people who are recovering from a surgical operation. Some people take much longer than others to recover from surgery, even when it is a minor. If you feel that you take longer than others to heal after surgery and you have another procedure upcoming, IV therapy can give you the boost you need to fully recover.*

What is involved in the wound healing process?

Vitamin C plays an essential role in collagen production. Collagen helps our bodies heal from wounds by providing structural support and integrity to the skin. The mineral zinc is also required for collagen biosynthesis. While Vitamin C and zinc supplements can help, they often don’t provide you with the amount of nutrients you need. After the trauma of surgery, the body actually requires over 100 times more Vitamin C than usual. IV vitamins also speed up the healing process by being injected straight into your bloodstream.

What other nutrients are used?

Although Vitamin C alone is very helpful, B-complex vitamins (B6 and B12, for example) and zinc are all synergistic with each other and they are great for your skin. Glutathione is a protein that may substantially reduce inflammation and promote tissue repair. Dr. Rubin recommend it for post-surgical wound healing and can use it during your infusion.

When should I schedule my IV therapy?

For the best possible results, Dr. Rubin recommends that you come in for two treatments–once before your surgery and again after your surgery.* This will give your body more ammunition to take on the task of repairing your connective tissues and skin.* 1-2 treatments before you surgery and another 1-2 sessions after your surgery may be recommended.* Dr. Rubin will select a treatment plan during your initial consultation.
