We currently have limited capacity to perform non-emergency surgery at the BMI The Saxon Clinic. The Saxon Clinic has robust systems in place to keep you safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. So far outcomes for patients after surgery with confirmed COVID-19 infection has not yet been fully investigated and the effects of COVID-19 on patients undergoing surgery are not fully known.
However, small studies have suggested that undergoing surgery whilst infected with COVID-19 increases the risk of serious complications or death in the post-operative period. Those risks are increased if you are undergoing major surgery, emergency surgery, or have serious pre-existing medical conditions. We at Mercury Foot and Ankle Clinic are committed to doing the best for you, and we will inform you of all the potential risks associated with the pandemic, so that you can make an informed decision to proceed with surgery.
