Putting on your socks and shoes

  • Using a sock aide and shoe horn will allow you to put on your shoes and socks without bending over or crossing your legs
  • Supportive, slip on shoes with a lip in the back or a closed back are suggested
  • Use elastic laces, available at pharmacies, if you choose to wear sneakers
  • Sandals, flip-flops and shoes with heels are not appropriate post-operative footwear
