What to expect before surgery

Once you have been referred by your GP, you will have a personal consultation with our doctor. Our doctor will explain the condition that affects you, and the likely outcome of various treatment options.

If surgery is the solution, our doctor will discuss thoroughly with you the nature of the surgery, how it is done, its benefits and risks, whether your condition is suitable for minimally invasive / laparoscopic surgery, and what to expect after the surgery. We will also organize the ideal time within which your surgery should take place.

You would be given time to consider our recommendations and whether or not you want to ask for a second opinion.

Once you decide to have surgery, we will help you with the consent form and paperwork for booking a hospital admission.

For your peace of mind, you will receive a full estimate of medical fees in form of an Informed Financial Consent (IFC). You will have time to read over it and return to our clinic in order to secure the surgery booking. Apart from the surgeon’s medical fee, you will also receive information about the anaesthestist and pathology services. You may also want to call your Health Insurer to find out your level of cover for hospital admission and your procedures.

Depending on the procedure that you are having, you may receive instructions on “bowel prep” to clean and empty your bowel 1-2 days prior to the surgery.

Many gynaecological surgeries are performed under general anaesthesia. It means you will be asked not to eat or drink anything for six hours before your surgical procedure.

On admission, you will be seen by your anaesthetist and a member of our staff to discuss any issues you may have and to prepare you for the operation. Once again, our doctor will go through with you the planned surgery and your recovery course.
