It is important for me to know your medical history, in order to plan the best treatment for you in hospital. Please bring a summary of your medical history to your appointment. In particular, please inform me if you:

  • Have a bleeding disorder
  • Have been diagnosed with blood clots in the leg (deep vein thrombosis) or lungs (pulmonary embolism)
  • Are currently taking any blood thinners
  • Have a heart or lung issue
  • Have diabetes (type 1 or 2)
  • Have had a joint infection in the past
  • Are a smoker - although smoking is not advisable for your overall health, it is particularly important to cease smoking prior to orthopaedic surgery. Smoking increases your risk of complications, especially infection and slow wound healing.
It is a good idea to remain as active as possible. Low impact exercise should be continued for as long as possible in the lead-up to surgery.

For specific advice regarding your operation, please refer to the patient information below.
