We follow a very transparent procedure that allows us to put forth the benefits and risks together in front of you. At Fortis Kolkata, our anesthetist will make sure to look after your wellbeing and safety before and after your surgery. This includes preoperative planning, choosing the apt anesthetic, and arranging appropriate postoperative care as well as pain control.
Before a surgery, a preoperative visit may be conducted to explain everything in detail. You will also be asked questions about your general health, any medications, allergies, or medical conditions. If you have a previous anesthetic experience, your anesthetist might ask you details about it. Thereon, he will give you advice on how to prepare for surgery by suggesting which medication needs to be taken or which one needs to be avoided and how long you might be required to fast. In case your anesthetist is not satisfied with your general health or feels that there might be some risk, the operation might be delayed until the issue at hand is resolved.
