How soon can I go home after aortic surgery?

A Answers (1)

  • Most patients are discharged from the hospital within four to seven days. The timing is dependent upon your energy level. Before discharge, you will need to be able to climb a flight of stairs and walk 150 feet. We will not discharge you before you are ready to come home. Some patients will need to go to an acute rehabilitation facility close to home if they have not progressed enough in independent living.
