The day of surgery
UPON ARRIVAL, CHECK IN AT THE ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE
The medical secretary will list again all the information given by you to the surgeon and anesthesiologist and give you the medical and administrative documents.
Remember the following documents: ID, your file.
You will be taken care of by one of our assistants who will accompany you in your room. To make your stay as pleasant as possible, we paid special attention to the comfort of each room.
DIALOG WITH THE ANESTHESIOLOGIST
Before the procedure, you can review with your anesthesiologist the different TYPES OF ANESTHESIA he had mentioned to you a few days before.
Various methods are conceivable, ambulatory or general anesthesia with a one night stay. The choice between these different techniques is the result of a discussion between you, the surgeon and the anesthesiologist. The consultation with the anesthesiologist will confirm or reject the choice of ambulatory surgery.
Anesthésie locale pure, un produit analgésique est injecté localement afin d’assurer l’insensibilité de la partie à traiter.
Anesthésie locale approfondie par des tranquillisants est administrés par voie intra-veineuse.
The procedure can be done in “ambulatory” surgery that is to say with a discharge on the same day after several hours of surveillance.
However, in some cases, a short hospital stay may be preferable. The admission is done on a given day and the discharge occurs the next day…
The nurses will go over the conditions to be met for admission to the unit (fasting, take a shower with betadine, remove all jewelry, do not wear polish or makeup, get medical documents, etc.)
Upon your return from the operating room, you will be cared by the healthcare team. Following the prescription, you still remain some time in bed or sitting until you are able to ambulate by yourself.
You will remain under medical supervision during this recovery phase.
The discharge authorization will be issued and signed by the surgeon or anesthesiologist.
In the weeks following the operation, you must return to the office in order to have a postoperative follow-up.
Postoperative pain is the main concern expressed by patients; its management will be discussed with the surgeon and the anesthesiologist in order to offer you the appropriate treatment.
