Preoperative Medical Assessments

All patients will be seen by an anesthetist prior to their surgery, usually following your admission to hospital. Ideally this consultation will take place in the ward but on occasion you will be seen in the operating theatre receiving area. In certain circumstances depending on the type of surgery or based on a patients underlying risk profile, you may be required to be seen at our practice rooms in advance of your admission day. This will afford us the opportunity to arrange for further directed testing, specialist consultations or adjusting current chronic medication to ensure that you are at your optimum state of health before undergoing your surgery.
