- You can contact the center via communication software, such as telephone, e-mail and Facebook to ask about your medical needs and problems.
- The healthcare manager will respond to your medical treatment questions. Please provide a relevant test report of your diagnosis of hernia, and fill out the evaluation form “Preoperative Assessment for Hernia“
On the day of your outpatient consultation, a healthcare manager will serve you. Once you have been diagnosed by a doctor, a nurse will discuss your medical options and conduct a physical examination (including X-ray, ECG, urine and blood tests). If you have any other medical conditions, your doctor can arrange for consultation from other specialists to assess the safety of your surgery.
Day of surgery
On the day of your surgery, you will be accompanied by a healthcare manager to complete the registration. After you are admitted to the ward, a nurse will prepare and educate you on the surgical procedure. After this preparation discussion, you can wait for the notification in the ward.
After surgery, you will rest in the ward. After you have had a few hours of rest, you can be discharged from the hospital if you are able to move freely and do not feel dizzy. Before leaving the hospital, the nurse will give you an explanation on wound care, soft movement and wound removal date. You can also ask the healthcare manager for assistance on various matters, including meals, transportation, medicine receiving and discharge procedures.
Return visit for follow-up
On the day of return visit (which is 7 days after surgery), you will receive postoperative consultation and suture removal from the doctor. We will provide you the medical certificate if you need it. This center recommends that you visit your doctor again one month, three months, six months, and one year after surgery to fully follow up the recovery process.
