Dr Cheng generally operates on Mondays, Tuesday and some Thursdays. Once your surgery date is confirmed you will be advised when you will need to arrive and how long you will need to stay after your operation. You will need to bring someone with you for at least part of your stay. This can be a partner, relative or good friend. If you are unable to bring someone, then let us know early so that we can suggest or arrange alternative assistance for you.
