Before the Surgery
You will be picked up from the airport and taken directly to the private hospital where the surgery will be performed.
After the patient is admitted to the hospital, blood tests will be performed before the surgery. An EKG is performed to assess the lung X-ray and heart rhythm. Ultrasound scans of the upper abdomen are made to examine the gallbladder, pancreas, and liver. The patient is examined together with all the results of the internal medicine, cardiology and anesthetists. If it is confirmed that the patient is eligible for surgery, the stomach will be examined by gastroscopy under general anesthesia. If there is no obstacle seen in the gastroscopy for the surgery, the patient is ready for the operation.
