Consultation with the anesthesiologist

The doctor will take note of your medical history, your treatments and your co-morbidities (other illnesses).

He will sometimes request additional explorations and opinions (consultation of a cardiologist for example).

He will explain the methods of anesthesia that will be used, the pain treatments and will adapt your medical treatment if necessary (if taking anticoagulant drugs for example).

If you have anticoagulant treatment, it is the anesthetist who will manage the necessary modifications before and after the operation so that it takes place safely.

He will confirm the possibility  to carry out your operation on an outpatient basis (entry and exit on the same day) and the constraints that this entails.

Whenever possible, it is the anesthesiologist that you saw in consultation who will put you to sleep but he can be replaced by one of his colleagues from the same team; The latter will have access to your file and will introduce themselves to you when you arrive in the department or operating room.
