Before surgery

Before your surgery you will either meet in a group session or during a clinic, depending on the surgery you are having.

At this meeting you will be provided with:

  • An explanation of your impending surgery and managing your expectations
  • Information on the importance of playing an active role in your own recovery with the support of health care professionals
  • Information on fitness for your surgery including diet, smoking, cessation, alcohol reduction, dental, infections, exercise and more
  • Practical information to help your recovery including planning for going home before you come in
