French term or phrase: à distance
"La population est constituée de 36 sportifs ayant bénéficié d’un séjour de rééducation au centre X, à distance d’un geste chirurgical orthopédique, dans le cadre d’un « programme de ré-athlétisation » ou de « rééducation complémentaire"

I'm just not 100% sure on this one. What does 'à distance' mean in this context - is it simply 'following' or 'after'?

TIA :)
