Surgery Day Information
This information will help to ensure your hospital stay with us is as comfortable as possible and answer any questions you might have about surgery day.
Take routine medication as your doctor has prescribed (for the purpose of taking medication only, small sips of water are allowed). Do NOT take any diabetes medication on the day of surgery (remember to discuss with your doctor).
Rinse your mouth without swallowing when brushing teeth. Shower using antibacterial soap. Remember not to apply any moisturisers, cream, or make-up
Make sure to arrive at least 2 – 3 hours ahead of your scheduled surgery time.
Once admitted, our friendly staff will accompany you to your bed to get settled and change into theatre clothes. Your medical history will be taken by staff, and will include questions about previous surgeries and illness, allergies, and medication
You will be asked to sign a form consenting your understanding of what the surgeon will be doing during the operation. You will have already discussed your surgery extensively with your specialist. The anaesthetist will visit you prior to surgery.
