Before Your Surgery

Pre-anaesthetic evaluation is required to make your surgery as easy and safe as possible. In some cases, existing medical conditions may impact anaesthesia. Not addressing your pre-existing medical condition until just before your surgery will cause a delay in and possibly a cancellation of your surgery. For your safety and convenience, you will be evaluated by our Anaesthetists for fitness one to two days before the proposed surgery.
The Anaesthesia Preoperative Evaluation Clinic is located on the 6th floor, A block (A6).
