On Your Surgery Day
After settling into hospital you will be visited by your anaesthetist who asks about your medical history and prepares you before surgery.
Dr Drielsma sees you prior to your procedure. Some marking up or drawing on you may be involved prior to you surgery. However, this process is unlikely to hold any surprises as you will be well informed prior to your surgery.
Day Patients – Your Hospital Stay
Nursing staff transfer you to the recovery area for an hour following your anaesthetic and operation, for monitoring. Prior to being discharged, you are transferred to the ward environment. However the type of operation you have and the time it takes you to recover from the anaesthetic determines the length of your hospital stay
Overnight Patients – Your Hospital Stay
Nurses transfer you to the recovery room following your operation and monitor you for an hour following you anaesthetic before transferring you to the ward department for your hospital stay. However, again, the type of operation you have and the time it takes you to recover from the anaesthetic determines the length of your hospital stay.
Before you leave the hospital you will be provided with post operative care instructions and details regarding your follow up appointments with Dr Drielsma.
