Consultation with the surgeon
During this consultation, your physician informed you about:
- the scheduled procedure and in particular, the benefits and the risks
- the length of your hospital stay
- your discharge procedure.
Additional examinations (blood tests, x-rays etc.) may be prescribed and carried out at the end of this consultation. We invite you to plan for enough time for this (about 3 hours).
Your doctor will have sent you the Admission Pack including all necessary documents and information: this pack includes all documents required for a stress-free stay.

It is essential that you bring all medical prescriptions relating to your current personal treatment plan to your consultation with the hospital doctor and to the anaesthesia consultation.
Please report all known allergies, drug intolerances and other intolerances.
The timetable for your stay will also be explained to you during the anaesthesia consultation. During the consultation, the anaesthesia technique will be explained to you, and the anaesthetist will answer your questions.
