The Patient Journey with Mr Rohit Jain

Making the decision to have major surgery is an important one but we pride ourselves on the patient journey with Mr Rohit Jain. From the initial consultation, during the procedure and with the aftercare package in place, you will receive the highest levels of care at all times.

Preparing for Surgery

The aim of the surgery is to improve pain, resolve mechanical symptoms and restore function. By reading what you should do beforehand, you can really help to make your surgery as easy as possible. Once the surgical treatment plan is ready you will sign a consent form.

On the day it is vital to make sure that you can get to the hospital. Make travel arrangements beforehand, as it is unlikely that you will be able to drive yourself to and from the hospital. If you are staying in the hospital, think of all of the things you might need and start packing a few days before the procedure. Research has shown that patients who maintain a good level of fitness before surgery have better results. If your doctor has advised you not to eat or drink for a specified period of time before your operation or take a certain medication, always follow their advice. Finally, it is completely normal to feel anxious before an operation so please talk to us.

Working with your Doctor

Prior to surgery, you will have a preoperative assessment to check you don’t have any issues that could change the result of the surgery. As part of the patient journey with Mr Rohit Jain, a specialist nurse will go through your medical history. You will be advised if any medications need to be stopped before surgery. This is especially the case with anticoagulants (blood thinners) and immune modulators. You will undergo routine blood tests; ECG, if required and MRSA swab tests.

Currently, you are required to have a COVID-19 Antigen Swab test at least 72 hours before surgery. The results of this test have to be negative before the surgery can proceed. You will be advised of the self-isolation period prior to the surgery.


After the surgery you will be transferred to the recovery ward then discharged usually within 48 hours. Your recovery continues at home. Losing weight, cutting down on smoking and alcohol intake and maintaining a healthy lifestyle will all aid the recovery process. You may have more questions about this so read more here.
