NSW - Sydney Specialist Anaesthetist (MBBS FANZCA)
My name is Dr Timothy Weston and I will be your Anaesthetist. I will be working alongside your surgeon to ensure you receive the best care possible.
I am an Australian trained medical graduate, who obtained my qualifications at the University of Sydney and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Clinical School. After completing my medical degree, I worked for several years in St George Hospital and Royal Prince Alfred where I went on to complete my training as a Specialist in Anaesthesia, obtaining recognition as a Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (FANZCA).
In my role as an Anaesthetist it is my responsibility, along with the surgeon to ensure your comfort and safety. I act as your peri-operative physician taking care of any medical issues arising before, during or after your procedure. I will monitor you throughout your procedure and ensure you are given an anaesthetic tailored to you, taking into consideration any health issues you may have.
What do you need to do?
It is vitally important that I am made aware of any medical information that may have an impact on you or your surgery. You can assist me in this role by completing the pre operative questionnaire. Failing to complete this questionnaire may result in cancellation or delays in your surgery in the interest of your safety.
In addition to filling out the pre operative questionnaire it is important that you prepare for surgery by following any recommendations given to you by your surgeon. I would also ask that you fast 6 hours before your procedure, unless otherwise told, and take your usual medications with a sip of water at least 2 hours before your scheduled surgery. If you have any X-rays, CT scans or MRIs relating to the surgery please bring them with you, as your surgeon may not always have them, and failure to have these available, may delay your surgery.
Your feedback is welcome
After your procedure I would appreciate if you could take a few minutes to fill out the Patient Experience Survey. The answers you give are completely anonymous and will help me to improve the way I care for patients in the future.
Thank you, I look forward to meeting you.
