Prepare for your outpatient surgery

Appointment with the anaesthetist

The outpatient surgery or examination you are to undergo has been suggested to you and explained by your surgeon or doctor. Depending on the operation or examination planned, a pre-anaesthetic consultation may be necessary at least 48 hours before the operation. If so, make sure you have the date and time of your appointment.


This is essential in order to facilitate your admission and to establish your administrative file, simplify the formalities and, in particular, reduce the waiting time on the day of your operation.
Make sure you have all the documents you need for pre-admission, as indicated in the patient itinerary.

Outpatient surgery: instructions to follow

Follow the advice and instructions given by your doctor and anaesthetist during the consultation:

Do not eat, drink or chew sweets or gum, as instructed by your doctor.

Follow the rules of hygiene: take a shower with betadine on the morning of your operation

Do not wear make-up or nail varnish (cut your nails short and clean), and do not wear jewellery (including piercings).

If the patient is a minor, the person legally responsible for him or her must be present at the entrance, as it is this person who will sign the authorisation for the operation (bring proof of identity and the family record book).

If the patient is a protected adult, he or she must be accompanied by the guardian or curator of his or her personal rights.

It is important to follow these instructions, otherwise your outpatient surgery may be postponed.
