Documents to be completed by the patient:

PREOPERATIVE ANESTHETIC SURVEY

GENERAL ANASTHESIA CONSENT

Completed questionnaires should be sent to info@chiroplastica.pl a few days before the planned visit to the clinic. Each patient qualified for surgical treatment at our clinic is consulted in order to obtain and perform the necessary tests that allow for surgical performance in a defined and predetermined range of anesthesia by our highly qualified team of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists. We treat each patient in a completely individual way, both for surgery and anesthesia process. During a specialist consultation visit, the patient is informed about the possible need for withdrawal from certain drugs and replacement of them with other drugs to safely perform the surgical treatment. Such specialist consultations take place prior to surgery. If there is a need for medical certificates, including proof of sick leave, we issue such documents,too.
