Myrecovery is a unique patient journey app, which guides my patients through their treatment from start to finish for all the common knee surgeries I perform. By using myrecovery, I strongly believe that my patients are significantly benefiting by being informed, involved and in control of their personalised treatment plans, with fingertip access to relevant and precise information. Patients can track their recovery, visualising their improvement and gaining confidence every step of the way. Most importantly, my patients and I are reassured by a sense of increased contact with each other all be it in a novel way!
