Consent for surgery
The surgeon will explain the nature of your condition and the procedure you will be undergoing, before obtaining your written consent for the surgery. Please feel free to discuss any concerns you might have with your doctor. 

Precautions for the patient to take
It is important to inform your doctor if you have:

  • Any other medical illnesses
  • History of allergy or reaction to any medications, drugs or food 
  • History of bleeding or clotting disorders
  • Current drugs or herbs that you are taking as these medications or herbs might affect blood clotting and increase the risk of bleeding. 

If you smoke, please stop smoking as soon as possible because this will help with smoother recovery and improve your health.
