On the day of the operation, please come to the clinic at the appointed time, with an empty stomach.
First, we conduct the formalities and verifiy all the required documents.
During the consultations with the anaesthetist any questions can be clarified. He or she will also insert an intravenous catheter for the intravenous administration of medication during the operation.
Your surgeon will talk over the operation again in detail. Afterwards, your arms or legs will be examined again, the surgery area will be marked, and photographs will be taken once again.
Once the operating room has been prepared, a nurse will take you there, the operating area will be disinfected and covered, and the anaesthetic will be induced intravenously. Then you sleep in a relaxed state while we work…
After the operation, you will first rest a little in your bed, then you should move around as much as possible and above all drink a lot. Our medical team will take devoted care of you.
Of course, we provide food and drink for your sustenance.
That evening you will receive your first anti-thrombosis injection.
Following hopefully a quiet night and after a tasty breakfast, we will visit you in the morning during a ward round, after which your escort can come and pick you up.
