During your consultation the relevant surgical procedure will be explained to you in detail. You will be given written information about the procedure. You will also be given a date for your surgery.
Please make sure you are at the hospital on time and give enough time to allow for traffic. You will usually be contacted by the hospital to confirm your insurance details. The anaesthetist will meet with you in hospital to discuss the anaesthetic.
Thorough and detailed planning will ensure everything goes smoothly. We routinely use sophisticated planning modalities to customize and individualize your joint-replacement surgery. Examples include 3-D computer modeling and robotic surgery. These options will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Mr. McMahon will perform the surgery and will have an assistant to help. There will also be an accredited international overseas orthopaedic Fellow who will observe and help with the procedure. The Fellow is an international trained orthopaedic surgeon participating in a 6 month fellowship to learn advanced joint-replacement surgery techniques and to carry out research to improve anthroplasty outcomes.
