Going home on the same day of your operation
Thanks to modern surgical and anaesthesiological procedures, ever more surgical interventions may be performed on an outpatient basis. Patients appreciate the advantages of this development, since the possibility of opting for ambulatory care, i. e. for having an operation without the need of an overnight stay in hospital, enables them to recover at home in their familiar surroundings.
Safe and reliable
The Day Clinic “Tagesklinik Am Brand” is geared towards the needs of its patients. The operation is performed by the specialist of the patient‘s choice. Before the operation takes place, patients will also meet the anaesthesiologist. And, what is of particular importance: Patients can be sure that the operation will take place on the scheduled date, since in our Day Clinic, only planned interventions are carried out.
- Before the operation
- Before your operation in the Day Clinic takes place, you will be given an appointment for a consultation. Among other topics, in this consultation you will be informed about the type of anaesthesia to be used, e. g. general anaesthesia or regional anaesthesia. Our anaesthesiologists take their time for this meeting in order for you to get to know them and for them to get an impression of the patient “as a whole”. Another important topic that will be dealt with in this premedication consultation is the question of medicines the patient takes. If patients are on a permanent medication, this will usually be maintained when an operation is carried out. Your anaesthesiologist will give you detailed information on this. To make your experience go as smoothly as possible, please take note of our checklist.
- On the day of the operation
- In our Day Clinic, only planned surgical interventions are carried out. Be assured: Your operation will not be postponed. You will be prepared for the operation without haste. When the operation is over, you can relax in our recovery room, where our experienced and well-rested staff will be at your side and care for you. The physician who has carried out the operation as well as the anaesthesiologist will also visit you once again. As soon as you have recovered, relaxation can start in the comfort of home. For you and your loved ones to be absolutely reassured, we give you a phone number which you can call in case of emergency.
- No emergencies, no hectic activity and a very high level of patient safety – this is what you can expect at our Day Clinic. We provide for utmost safety, also thanks to our policy of investing continuously in the replacement of medical devices and the acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment. What’s more: During the entire duration of their stay, patients are under permanent supervision thanks to a monitoring system. As soon as patients have been been officially admitted, they are given a portable device which monitors the vital signs on a permanent basis, in all areas of the Day Clinic.
