Sydney Oculoplastic Surgery has been in operation since 2005 as a hospital recognised by the Federal Government and is fully accredited. It is licensed with the New South Wales Department of Health as a day hospital and is recognised as the same by health funds. Sydney Oculoplastic Surgery has a full contract with the Department of Veteran Affairs and fees are partially reimbursed by all other health funds.
Since its inception in 2005, each week many procedures are performed at Sydney Oculoplastic Surgery. The procedures are usually performed under sedation by an anesthetist. Once the patient is sedated an injection is used to anesthetise the region which will be operated.
After the patient is anesthetised they are taken from the anesthetic bay into the operating room, the procedure is performed with A/Prof Ghabrial and his assistant surgeon, another fully qualified doctor.
After the procedure is performed the patient’s are taken to recovery and one of our nurses gives them something to eat and they are discharged when they are awake and comfortable. The patient’s must have someone to accompany them on their way home as they may be slightly drowsy. If you think you may not have someone to accompany you, please inform our staff prior to your surgery.
