    We maintain the same level of contact with you in the postoperative period. The doctorís PA is available to you 24 hours a day by phone and email to contact her with your concerns. You will be given a Belgian prescription for a pain killer and antibiotics.

    Your Stay

    Based on your kind of surgery and distance from home we will inform you up front if after the surgery you can go back home (providing you are accompanied) or how many days to stay at a hotel or if you first have to stay a night in the hospital (price included, an extra night is Ä500) before your stay at the hotel. Use our hotel suggestions in the proximity of the clinic or hospital, so in case of an emergency you can be seen by one of the doctors.

    For the best postoperative service, we suggest the B&B Notary Lodge in Beveren. It is around the corner of the Singelberg clinic and a daily checkup for all patients in this hotel is possible, because Dr. Oelbrandt is staying there during the week. Seema, the wife of Dr Oelbrandt, is running this beautiful B&B (www.notarishuisbeveren.com).

    Your Recovery

    The recovery period is variable, dependent upon different factors. Some people heal quicker. Different procedures swell differently. We will communicate to you realistic expectations of your recovery period. And we use state of the art medications both before, during, and after surgery in order to reduce swelling and bruising.

    When the recovery is normal, the last optional check-up will be in the hospital or the clinic. Your post-operative consultation will be approximately 2 months after surgery and is to be booked in by contacting the assistant by phone or email.
