Prior to the implantation of the prosthesis, the patient undergoes an examination performed according to strict rules (laboratory and urine tests, nose and throat swab culture, anaesthesiologic examination, if necessary, internal medicine and other consultation deemed necessary by the anaesthesiologist).
With a few exceptions, our patients also have the option of autotransfusion. In this case, one’s own blood is drawn before the operation, so that if anaemia is detected in the postoperative period, the patient will receive the blood they had previously given.
A light dinner is available before surgery, but fluid intake is not allowed from midnight.
Our prosthetic surgeries are performed under antibiotic protection. Only medications dispensed by our nurses can be taken in our ward.
