The body’s nutritional demands increase after surgery:

  • When the body enters a higher metabolic state, it requires more energy.
  • Muscles can become smaller as a result of trauma or inactivity, extending recovery.
  • The stress and the trauma of surgery can weaken your immune system.
  • Wound infection has a higher chance of occurring with malnutrition.
  • Chronic inflammation impedes healing and restoration of mobility.
  • The physiological stress of surgery can increase fatigue.
  • Significant unintended weight loss is frequent after major surgery.

For preventing muscle weakness after joint surgery

Ortho Nutrition Bundle


For preventing muscle weakness after joint surgery

Nutritional deficiencies can delay the natural healing process, putting patients at risk of infection and prolonging recovery times. According to recent medical studies, people who are nutritionally well-nourished before and after surgery will recover faster and have better long-term results. Unfortunately, most Americans are overfed and undernourished, implying that they are not nutritionally optimized for surgery and face an increased chance of postoperative complications.

Two popular options for recovering following joint replacement are MEND and the Ortho Nutrition Bundle

Benefits of Pre and Post-Op Nutrition

We strongly believe in the benefits of using nutritional supplementation for our patients’ post-operative recovery. The combination of scientific research and natural ingredients in their products helps bridge the nutritional gap to optimize healing outcomes.

Mend 1

These supplements have been proven to address muscle atrophy and weakness in patients undergoing total joint replacement, ACL surgery, or knee arthroscopy. In multiple double-blind placebo-controlled randomized trials, nutritional supplementation had the following results:

  • Stopping Muscle Atrophy: 40% more muscle preservation during recovery
  • Return of Function: Compared to the placebo group, those who took nutritional supplementation saw a significant improvement in their ability to return to normal function.
  • Inflammation: Post-operative inflammation levels significantly improved when compared to those who only received the placebo medication.

Better healing, faster recovery & fewer complications

Mend is a proprietary blend of essential amino acids (EAAs) that has been shown in multiple randomized clinical trials to help preserve muscle and enhance your return to function and mobil­ity.

Additional research on EAAs has shown enhanced wound healing and fewer com­plications in other procedures.

Optimizing Recovery: Essential Supplements

When discussing the role of supplements in recovery, it’s important to consider how these nutrients support muscle repair, reduce inflammation, and enhance overall recovery.

Supplement Catalog


Diosmin is used to reduce postoperative swelling. It has venotonic and vasoprotective properties, meaning it can improve venous circulation and reduce venous pressure, which in turn helps minimize swelling and inflammation. Additionally, its anti-inflammatory effects reduce the overall discomfort and enhance the healing process.

Bromelain is included for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. This enzyme extracted from pineapple can help reduce bruising and swelling by breaking down proteins that trap fluids in the tissues after surgery. Bromelain has been shown to speed up the resolution of bruising, reduce inflammation, and promote healing in the postoperative period.

Multivitamins are crucial in postoperative recovery by providing a comprehensive range of vitamins and minerals that support overall health, immune function, and wound healing. Specific components, such as Vitamin C, are integral for collagen synthesis and skin healing; Vitamin D and calcium support bone health; B vitamins, including folate, B12, and iron, are vital for energy production and the formation of red blood cells, which can help counteract postoperative anemia and the associated decrease in hemoglobin levels.
