What to Expect
One of the best ways to decide if surgery is right for you is by meeting with a surgeon. During this first consultation, you and your surgeon will discuss your goals and expectations. Your surgeon will also:
- Review your complete medical history (including past and current medications)
- Evaluate the part of your body that you want treated
- Give recommendations
- Answer any questions you have
In addition, as you consider your decision, discuss with the doctor any medical conditions that could affect your procedure’s outcomes and consider benefits, risks and anaesthesia, as well as the timeline for returning to work or social activities.
You should leave your first visit with a clear idea of the surgical options available to you, as well as any risks involved. If you and your surgeon decide upon a procedure, you will work with our appointment staff to schedule your surgery. You will be given complete information regarding where and when to arrive, any eating/drinking restrictions prior to your surgery and the length of your hospital stay.
