IV recovery treatment is an exciting treatment that helps facilitate faster recovery after surgery. During this treatment, our experienced staff administers nutrient-rich therapies designed to promote healing after surgery.

During the treatment, a high-concentration of fortifying vitamins are delivered directly into the bloodstream. Though each patient will receive a treatment that is unique to his or her needs, most IV therapies involve the use of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids – compounds essential to proper healing after surgery.

Post-Surgical IV Vitamin Therapy Cost & More

Though it can be used to treat everything from the common cold to certain cardiovascular conditions, IV vitamin therapy is especially useful when applied in a post-op care setting.

After undergoing a medical procedure, your body may need additional help to heal properly. With extra nutrients and vitamins provided intravenously, patients can expect to heal faster and with fewer complications.

For example, when recovering from any type of wound, collagen (a natural substance produced by the body) provides structural integrity and support for the skin. Vitamin C is a compound that stimulates and increases the amount of collagen produced by the body. During the treatment, Vitamin C and zinc (another compound related to collagen production) are used to promote the production of collagen, resulting in faster and more effective healing of body tissues.

Why is IV vitamin therapy more cost effective than vitamin pills? After surgery, your body will require over 100 times more vitamin C than usual, and IV recovery treatments have been shown to be more effective in the healing process than orally-ingested vitamins.

IV vitamin therapy is also shown to have few or zero side effects. When it comes to your health, why settle for anything less than the best?

Should You Choose IV Therapy or Oral Supplements?

In an ideal world, the human body could obtain all of the vitamins and nutrients it needs for optimal health and performance through the food we eat. But let’s face it – in our fast paced and demanding modern world, the average person is lucky to get a fraction of the nutrients they need through diet alone. Between work and family obligations, and what time is left over for recreational pursuits and exercise (if any!) making the extra time and effort to cook and eat all of the servings of broccoli and lean meats that the food pyramid recommends is virtually impossible!

People with existing health issues or about to undergo surgery are especially vulnerable and need to ensure optimal immune function for adequate healing and recovery. At Johnstone Periodontics, patients can undergo IV Therapy after surgery for a super-charged immune boost. Vitamins and oral supplements have traditionally been an easy and convenient way to get the daily recommended dose of vitamin C and Magnesium, but even taking a multi-vitamin can only provide a limited dose of the nutrients the body needs.

How IV Therapy Can Help Patients Recover After Surgery

IV Therapy is a procedure where essential vitamins and nutrients are injected directly into the patient’s bloodstream intravenously, ensuring maximum absorption and impact. Dosages and combinations vary according to each patient’s unique and individual needs, but typical treatments consist of a combination of:

  • vitamins
  • minerals
  • amino acids (of particular importance to patients recovering from surgery)

IV therapy is an excellent resource for anyone looking to complement and maintain an already healthy lifestyle and nutrition plan, or to recover from everything from a common cold and flu to a surgical procedure.

The elevated dosage and absorption rates available through IV therapy make it an ideal solution for post surgery healing and wound care. Collagen, which is naturally produced by the body, works to provide structural integrity to the skin and vitamin C helps to stimulate collagen production.

With a dose of IV therapy, patients can receive vitamin C and zinc to supercharge collagen production and increase healing time and results in a way that an oral multi-vitamin simply cannot. IV therapy doses can also help fight and prevent inflammation, which is critical to healthy healing after a surgical procedure.
