In the Department of Surgery, we offer our patients pre- and post-discharge special consultation hours. In our consultation hours, a specialist, i.e. the chief physician or a senior physician, takes time for you.
If an operation is necessary, the consultation offers the opportunity to discuss the diagnostics, the surgical procedure and the follow-up treatment in detail. As far as possible, any preliminary examinations that are missing will be performed immediately on an outpatient basis. If necessary, your family doctor will receive detailed information to coordinate further diagnostics. An anesthesiologist will explain the anesthesia procedure to you in detail and we will arrange a fixed surgery date with you.
As a rule, you will be operated on the day of your hospital admission. After some operations, you can leave the hospital on the day of the operation. You will receive detailed behavioral recommendations from us for your home environment. When you are discharged from our short-term surgery, you will be given an outpatient follow-up appointment in our consultation hours.
