Preparing for surgery day
If you are traveling from outside of the Montreal area, planning ahead is paramount for the ease of your procedure. Rest assured that you are in the very capable hands of Dr. Bensimon’s highly trained nurses and staff.
Dr. Bensimon will suggest an appropriate amount of time to take off work, as well as provide you with a list of antibiotic and pain management medication to be purchase prior to surgery. It is highly encouraged to completly cease smoking at least 4 weeks before surgery, as this will decrease complications and speed-up recovery. In some instances, you will be required to purchase surgical, or antiembolic, stockings.A complete list of pre-operative instructions will be provided
Loose fitting and comfortable clothes are suggested for surgery day. Please leave all jewelry and valuables at home or your place of stay, and all body jewelry must be removed. Nail polish should be completely removed from the fingers and toes. Fasting is required the night before, so please provide ample time to arrive on schedule so there’s no feeling of being rushed or hurried.
Please contact the office staff for more information on hotels that are in close proximity to the surgery center, should it be required. We strongly recommend to have a close relative for the post operative period and we can also arrange an overnight nursing service to stay with you after the surgery.
