We know that before any operation you may have questions. In order to help you, we have prepared a list of frequently asked questions and answers. If you need more information, do not hesitate and contact us.
How should I prepare myself before coming to the hospital?
Always follow the instructions of the medical staff. During the preoperative period, it is required fast for 6 hours before the surgery. Likewise, avoid consuming alcohol and smoking during the 24 hours prior to the operation. It is also advisable to avoid the use of make-up, nail polish, body creams and perfume after showering and any type of depilatory product.
As for the luggage needed during your stay at the clinic, we recommend that you prepare a bag with comfortable clothes and a toiletry bag with personal hygiene accessories. The clinic’s rooms are single, with a suite bathroom and a sofa bed for the person accompanying you.
What should I do when I arrive at the hospital?
Once you arrive at the centre, please provide your details to the reception staff to check your admission details before proceeding to the admissions room. Once there, you will be admitted. You will be accompanied throughout the process by a nursing team.
Moreover, for the duration of the operation and to be easily located, those accompanied are advised to remain in your assigned room.
