What to expect from surgery
Preoperatively you will be contacted to ensure that you withhold any required medications and that you understand your fasting instructions. For most operations you should refrain from eating or drinking for 6 hours before your admission time.
On the day of surgery, you will need to present to the admissions area of the hospital. You will be admitted and brought to the theatre, where you will see Mr. Sewell in the holding bay and will meet your anaesthetist.
At the end of the operation Mr. Sewell can contact your next of kin if you wish.
Postoperatively, if you are staying overnight you will see Mr. Sewell on the ward prior to your discharge. If you are having a day procedure, Mr. Sewell will see you prior to you leaving hospital. You will be provided with discharge instructions and information
You will have a follow up appointment organised.
Should you have any postoperative concerns, please contact Sewell Urology on 1800 739 355. Out of hours, please leave a voicemail and Mr Sewell will call you back.

Sewell Urology aims to minimise out-of-pocket costs for our patients. We consistently charge below AMA rates for our procedures, although a gap fee applies for major cancer and robotic operations, consistent with the additional specialist training and expertise these require.
The fees charged by pathology and radiology providers, and out-of-pocket costs charged by anaesthetists, are not under our control.
