THE 1ST CONSULTATION
THE PERIOD FOR LEGAL REFLECTION
This first consultation will be the time for me to provide you with information on each aspect of the problem. I will help you outline the problems that bring you into my office, the object being that the diagnosis be rigorously laid .
With the aid of printed sheets, I present to you all the facets of the possible operation: profits, but also the risks and complications of which I make it a duty to inform you in a complete way.
ANALYZES AND EXAMS
THE 2ND APPOINTMENT
We will also discuss anesthesia. I give my recommendations but it is the anesthetist, in agreement with you since you will meet him before the operation, who will decide, depending on the nature of the operation and according to the results of your exams, what anesthesia he will perform. If the procedure involves general anesthesia, a standard preoperative protocol should be established: blood tests, electrocardiogram, anesthetic consultation, fasting, interruption of any aspirin-based or similar drug treatment at least 10 days before Intervention and smoking cessation at least 2 weeks before.
In some cases, only local anesthesia will be offered.
