Surgery

Day surgery is performed on a majority of patients undergoing minor oral surgery. It enables you to be discharged home after minimally invasive oral procedures. It can involve different degrees of anaesthesia either local, intravenous sedation (twilight anaesthesia) or general anaesthesia. These procedures can be performed at the Essendon Day Procedure Centre or in a hospital where your surgeon has visiting rights. Arranging your surgery requires a degree of preparation which will be detailed at your initial consultation.

Procedures requiring local anaesthetic or sedation only are performed at the Essendon Day Procedure Centre.

Procedures requiring general anaesthetic are performed at the Hobson Healthcare Day Surgery in Sydenham, John Fawkner Private Hospital, Western Private Hospital, Seymour District and Memorial Hospital, Wyndham Clinic, Sunbury Day Hospital, Cotham Private Hospital, Freemasons and Epworth Private Hospitals.
