Preparing for surgery

Once you and your doctor have agreed that surgical treatment is appropriate and the best approach for your care, you will be given a hospital admission form. Please work with the reception staff to complete this form and once complete leave it with us to notify the hospital and arrange your admission date.

Once a surgery date has been agreed upon you will receive a quote for surgery from our accounts team. Please familiarise yourself with the information regarding cost of surgery and return the financial consent form. If you have any questions, please contact our accounts team.

A day or two prior to admission you will be contacted by the hospital who will tell you the exact admission time and give you specific details about your admission.

Please ensure you have discussed and are aware of any medication you need to stop taking prior to surgery and when you should begin fasting. For your comfort bring an overnight bag with toiletries, clothing and any other personal items you may want during your stay in hospital.

Should you require any information or additional assistance throughout this time please do not hesitate to contact our office on 02 9812 390002 9812 3900 and ask to speak directly to your treating surgeon’s assistant.
