Recovery from surgery is just as much a psychological process as a physical one. Patients often feel vulnerable, as if they have lost control of their lives. "Bari Buddy" also has proven to be a great comfort if a patient suffers from post-operative depression. It becomes a very special gift to give your patient, another tool that helps them through their surgery, and a reminder of your committment to them and their success.
