  • If you have any allergies to drugs, please inform your doctor during the consultation.
  • If you're taking medications for chronic illnesses or if you have any other health conditions, inform the clinic beforehand.

Aftercare 

  • Follow your doctor’s instructions and your post-operative diet plan carefully (you will receive full instructions).
  • It’s important to stay hydrated and drink an adequate amount of water. Again, follow your doctor’s instructions on the best way to consume liquids.
  • You can return to work after 1 to 2 weeks. You will probably feel less energetic for some time after surgery so it is important to take it slow.
  • You will be encouraged to take short walks after surgery and slowly increase your physical activity.

  • Refrain from swimming until your wounds have completely healed.

Meine Erfahrung ist das alles gut organisiert war, aber ich keinen rate allein ohne Sprachkenntnisse der Landessprache oder Englisch allein auf den Weg zumachen.

Ich wurde vom Flughafen abgeholt und auch wieder hingebracht. Der Ablauf war gut durchdacht und lief ohne Probleme ab. Das Personal war sehr nett und hat mich gut behandelt. Das Krankenhaus war auch sehr sauber. Meine Erfahrung ist das alles gut organisiert war, aber ich keinen rate allein ohne Sprachkenntnisse der Landessprache oder Englisch allein auf den Weg zumachen.

Mir hat es sehr gut gefallen der persönlichen Kontakt.

Ich habe eine anfrage in online gestellt über Magenbypass und bekam sehr schnell ein Antwort per E-Mail. Da ich im Urlaub war schrieb ich zurück und sagte das ich erst im August telefonisch zu erreichen bin. Der Anruf war sehr freundlich und informativ. Vereinbarten den Bauch OP für den 3.11.2018. Ich fuhr mit Auto dorthin und übernachtete im ein Hotel. An Freitag den 02.11.2018 ging ich ins Krankenhaus und würde alle nötigen Untersuchungen durchgeführt. Am meine Seite war die persönliche Beraterin , Sie war sehr freundlich. Die Krankenschwester und setzte waren immer zu stelle wenn Fragen oder etwas bräuchten. Der Krankenhaus ist sauber und der Personal sehr freundlich. Mir hat es sehr gut gefallen der persönlichen Kontakt.
