On the day of the operation, please come to our clinic at the appointed time, fasting.
Firstly, all formalities will be taken care of, and documents will be checked.
Your surgeon will talk to you again in detail. Then your arms or legs will be re-examined, the surgical area will be marked, and photos will be taken once again.
During the discussion with the anaesthesiologist, any last questions can be clarified. The anaesthesiologist will also provide you with access to intravenous administration of medication during the operation.
After the preparation of the operating room, you will be accompanied by a nurse, the operating area will be disinfected and covered, and anaesthesia will be induced. Then you fall asleep relaxed while we work.
After the operation, you will first rest a little in your bed. After a small meal, you should move as much as possible and drink a lot of fluids. Our team of nurses will care for you attentively. We will, of course, provide food and drink for your physical well-being.
In the evening, you will receive your first thrombosis injection.
After what is hopefully a quiet night with us, you will have a delicious breakfast, we will visit you for the morning rounds, and then your escort can pick you up.
