Surgery

Once Dr King has assessed your condition he will discuss the treatment options available to you and formulate a treatment plan.

If the plan involves surgery, Dr King will fully explain what the procedure involves, the length of time in hospital, recovery times etc. Once a date has been set you will be sent an information pack with detailed instructions regarding the hospital stay, anaesthetic, peri-operative information and an estimate of the cost. Dr King endeavours to provide an accurate, “known gap” quote to eliminate unpleasant surprises when you receive your invoice. The information pack will also include consent forms for you to sign and return, if this was not attended to at your appointment. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your surgery, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

AFTER THE SURGERY

The length of your stay in hospital varies depending on the procedure and your recovery. In many cases, you will be seen by a physiotherapist in hospital who will give you some exercises to do to help aid in your recovery.

Once Dr King is happy with your progress you will be able to return home. You will be supplied with detailed instructions regarding wound care, medications, suitable activities and when to come back for your post-operative review.

If at any stage you have any concerns about your recovery, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
