Iliotibial Band (ITB) Release for Runners Knee
ABOUT THE SURGICAL PROCEDURE
- After surgery, you will be encouraged to rest for a few days to allow the soft tissues to settle.
- You will be given guidance and information before discharge from hospital.
- Rehabilitation is an important part of your treatment; you will need to work closely with a physiotherapist for your recovery.
RISKS OF SURGERY
As with any surgery, complications can occur. Risks include infection, blood clots (deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism), on-going stiffness and failure to improve, and reaction to anaesthesia. It is also possible that you may require further surgery in the future.
