Individual treatment for each patient will vary, and a detailed treatment process will be determined by each patient’s needs and state of health. In choosing to undergo otolaryngology treatment in collaboration with Latvian clinics, the patient can primarily reckon with the establishment of a close relationship electronically, followed by a visit to Latvia lasting 1−2 weeks. The patient should arrange his calendar accordingly and plan for a total of 2−4 weeks for a quality operation and post-operation recovery period.
General treatment process steps are as follows:
The duration of the patient’s visit to Latvia will depend on the medical treatment that he is due to undergo. Depending on the scope of the operation performed, a regime of peace and quiet is necessary, accompanied by a work incapacity note for 1 to 3 weeks after the operation, but a long stay at the clinic will not be required. In accordance with the doctor’s instructions, the patient can recover at home and restart a normal life without any restrictions quite soon. For two weeks after the operation, the patient should avoid consuming hot food and drinks, avoid blowing his nose powerfully and hot showers. For one month, the patient must not burden himself with an increased physical load or visit a sauna.
The operation may be postponed if:
