You have been operated on or will have surgery on our shoulder surgery service.
A splint of immobilization or rest is most often necessary in the immediate aftermath of the surgical procedure.
The type of splint and the duration of the port is variable according to the intervention performed and / or the surgeon.
You will find in the blue box above the main splints used and explanations on their implementation.
NB: RIGS ARE GENERALLY PROVIDED BY LAGARRIGUE INSTITUTIONS PRESENT IN THE CLINIC
An invoice will be given to you in exchange for the splint as if you buy it in a pharmacy, some of them (most as soon as the elbow is not in the body) are only partially reimbursed by social security, so it will remain a part often not negligible at your expense or supported by your mutual (inquire !!!)
You can contact for more information the Lagarrigue establishments at 05-61-37-87-80
