COVID -19 Procedures
On admission we will ask if you are well. Please do not attend your appointment if you are unwell. Call to inform our staff
prior to attending if you are unsure.
Please rest assured your surgery and post-operative care will proceed as normal and we will provide you with the safest care possible.
Current NSW Health guidelines for having an anaesthetic post covid infection are as follows:
4 weeks for asymptomatic
6 weeks for symptomatic without hospitalisation
8 to 10 weeks symptomatic who is diabetic, immunocompromised or hospitalised
12 weeks for those admitted to ICU due to COVID
An individual assessment can be made by your Surgeon/Anaesthetist to determine your suitability for surgery.
