Preparing for Major Surgery
Patient outcomes after surgery have been improving steadily in recent years. Unfortunately major surgery does still cause a significant physical stress on the body and a patient’s ability to deal with this stress plays a very large part in the outcome of their operation. Patients who are fitter before their operation are more likely to recover more quickly and more completely.
We have arranged sessions in York and Scarborough for our members to attend. Our colleague, Dr David Yates, Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine, will explore the various adverse effects that major surgery has on the body, what the anaesthetic community is doing to try to reduce these effects, how research has changed our practice over the years and most importantly, what patients can do to prepare themselves for surgery as well as possible.
