Surgery not only creates apprehension and anxiety for patients, it is also the beginning of a long process.

First, there is the necessary psychological and physiological preparation before the operation, then the surgery itself, and lastly, the postoperative follow-up.To help you get through this process with more peace of mind, LPG has developed LPG ACTIVE LIFE: a pre- and postoperative care program created in collaboration with surgeons, hospital rehabilitation specialists and physiotherapists. Thanks to the combined use of the endermothérapie® and Huber® techniques, LPG ACTIVE LIFE offers comprehensive, personalized patient care for greater comfort, but also for faster, more effective rehabilitation.

Endermothérapie®


Before the operation, the endermothérapie® technique helps prepare and soften skin tissue to limit side effects and complications, facilitate the procedure, and thus maximize surgery’s success. After the operation, the treatment’s draining effect allows edema and bruises from the surgery to be resorbed more quickly. Simultaneously, the LPG treatment head stimulates the cells of the dermis (fibroblasts) so as to restore skin suppleness and elasticity, promote healing and recover range of motion. This natural, painless treatment has no side effects.

HUBER®


Thanks to the platform’s range of motion variations and the different integrated programs, HUBER® enables joint mobility training and preventative muscular chain strengthening to be done before the surgery in order to optimize physical rehabilitation goals.

After the operation, HUBER® rehabilitation sessions help recover lost flexibility, improve stability (by improving patient’s weight bearing), and develop their range of motion to regain independence and start exercising again.

The patient’s 4-step care process

 

  • 1st Step :  THE PATIENT CONSULTS WITH THEIR SURGEON

After diagnosis, the surgeon prescribes the LPG® Active Life program. The surgeon creates a patient file which will follow the patient until they are fully recovered.

 

  • 2nd Step : THE PATIENT GOES THROUGH SURGERY PREPARATION SESSIONS

Chez un kinésithérapeute référent, près de chez lui, au sein de son espace LPG® Active Life. With a referent physiotherapist, near to their home, in an LPG® Active Life center. Depending on patient’s condition, the physiotherapist will adapt specific endermothérapie® and HUBER® treatments to optimize patients preparation to the operation. Patient’s progress will be recorded in the file and available to the medical team.

 

  • 3rd Step :  THE PATIENT ENTERS SURGERY WELL PREPARED AND REASSURED

Surgery is optimized. The patient gets premium rehabilitation treatment at referent LPG® Active Life center. The patient is soon back on their feet and ready to go home.

 

  • 4th Step :  THE PATIENT GOES BACK TO THEIR PHYSIOTHERAPIST AND THE LPG® ACTIVE LIFE CENTER FOR THE REST OF THEIR PHYSICAL REHABILITATION

For the patient to fully recover, they continue their rehabilitation program. Thanks to effective and customized treatment, the patient regains their independence and is soon fully recovered. Participating in this program has given the patient their best chance to return to a normal life as early as possible.
