What is peri-operative care?
Peri-operative care is the term used to describe the three stages of undergoing a surgical procedure.
- Pre-admission preparation and care
- Time in hospital
- Post-discharge follow-up and management
Although seemingly critical, your time in the operating theatre is usually experienced without problems. The surgical journey is much more than just the operation. It begins from the moment surgery is planned until you fully recover.Â
Recovery can take many months and, if not managed correctly, can lead to long-term chronic disability.
Patients are more likely to develop complications if they have preexisting poorly controlled medical conditions, a reduced level of general fitness or have modifiable lifestyle risk factors. Such complications can influence your recovery and long-term outcome.
Our team puts you at the centre during each step of your surgical journey so that you experience your optimal outcome.
You’ll undergo a through pre- surgical assessment designed to identify and manage any pre-existing conditions that might impact your surgical outcome.
Supporting you as you recover in hospital. We work with your surgical team to get you mobile, manage any short-term complications and ensure that your pre-existing conditions are well managed.
We’ll continue to provide the support you need either in the home or our clinic. You’ll undergo a post-surgical assessment with our rehabilitation consultant who’ll ensure you have access to the services you require.
