3. The operation

Orthopaedic operations are done as day surgery, which means that you will be released to go home to recuperate in the course of the same day. In certain back operations you will stay the night in the hospital for observation. We will be in touch with you a few days before the operation and go through what needs to be done to prepare for the operation with you.
