At admission to the hospital, you are required to have an abdominal binder (compression belt), special leg massager belt and compression stockings for after surgery with you. We recommend purchasing them prior to arrival as you need to take your own measurements in order to get the right size and also due to the possible language barrier at the pharmacy in Poland. Please note, we do not offer assistance in purchasing those items in Poland.

Depending on the coronavirus situation, there may be an additional requirement for patients to have proof of a negative rt-PCR Covid-19 swab test result (not older than 48 hours) – recommended to be done before arrival (own arrangements required). Alternatively, we can arrange for you to have it done after arrival 2 days before surgery (additional cost of around 500 PLN / £93 / €109 for the tests + additional transfers & assistance fees 150 PLN / £28 / €33 if required).
