Hello, I’m Dr. Derek Snook

Sporting activities are generally allowed within 4 to 6 weeks after lesser invasive operations. More invasive operations, such as a spinal fusion, may take more like 6 to 12 weeks before we allow you to return to full sporting activities.

If you want to know more about when you can return to work after surgery, contact us at JIS Orthopedics. Our specialists in New Albany and St. Clairsville, Ohio, can give you the answers you are looking for. Schedule a visit with us today!
