Postoperative and Inpatient Acupuncture

RiverView Health is the only healthcare system in the region with a postoperative and inpatient acupuncture program.  Ms. Scott was an attendee at the inaugural event The Hospital Setting: Integrative Heath Practitioner Training for Oriental Medicine Professionals at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis Minnesota where acupuncturists from around the country came together to discuss acupuncture and oriental medicine in the hospital setting and learn about Abbott’s program.

RiverView Health provides complimentary post-operative and inpatient acupuncture services for the management of pain and nausea and vomiting. If you are interested in post operative acupuncture and would like to learn if you are a candidate please discuss your options with your surgeon and surgical nurses or at your pre-operative visit with your primary care provider.  An introduction to the acupuncturist and an opportunity to complete necessary paperwork can be facilitated at your pre-operative visit.
