Information for interstate or rural patients
As well as patients who live in Adelaide, we also treat patients from rural South Australia and interstate.
Most of your pre- and post-operative appointments can be done via phone or video, so you can do this comfortably from your home location.
You can also book your immediate follow up with the dietitian for while you are in Adelaide. Make sure you do this a few weeks before your surgery to ensure you secure your preferred date.
Your hospital stay
It’s important to stay in the Adelaide Metropolitan Area for 2 to 3 days after your surgery, in case there are any complications. Your surgeon will advise how long this will be, depending on your situation.
We recommend the Adabco Boutique Hotel on Wakefield Street, which is a short distance from the Calvary Adelaide Hospital. For a 5-star experience, the Mayfair Hotel in the heart of the city also provides a discount to our patients, and is only about 1 km away from the hospital.
