In special circumstances or for anxious patients, sedation or a general anaesthetic is an alternative to local anaesthesia, provided there are no medical reasons to contraindicate it. We will be happy to advise you and discuss these options with you.

Both options are co-payments for people with statutory health insurance. These may be covered in whole or in part by supplementary insurance – please understand that we cannot assist you in arranging for the costs to be covered or negotiate with your insurer.

Therefore, please inform yourself in good time about any additional costs for the anaesthesia of your choice.

A preliminary consultation before the day of the operation is not mandatory for an outpatient general anaesthetic. However, it is essential to follow certain rules around eating, drinking and smoking for your own safety. We will provide you with detailed information documents and forms at the Clinic and Ambulantory Surgery Center reception desk in relation to these rules.
