Stop smoking

Smoking triples the chance of post surgical complications.

If you are hospitalized, we can help you to stop smoking.

STOP SMOKING FROM THE DAY OF YOUR CONSULTATION

  • We recommend that you stop smoking at least 8 weeks before surgery.
  • Hospitalized smokers use nicotine substitutes, such as patches.
  • Risks can be reduced - though not eliminated - if you stop, or reduce smoking closer to the date of surgery, by using nicotine substitutes. The benefits of stopping smoking can be seen even if you stop as late as 3 weeks to 48 hours before surgery. For patients who cough and wheeze when they stop smoking, a good nicotine substitute should be used, together with respiratory therapy.
