Booked for MCD in Tallinn, Estonia?

Here you can find useful information to prepare for the trip and the procedure

Welcome! You are booked for MCD non-surgical operation in Tallinn, Estonia in near future. Here we have some information to help you to arrange your trip and prepare yourself for the procedure.

Important to know before the procedure

Follow the Nutrition plan

Please start following this Nutrition Plan (open pdf-file) now!

It will help to reduce inflammation in your shoulder.

Read the Exercise Booklet

Please read this Post-op booklet (open pdf-file, last upload  2021).
These exercises are very important. In the first 24 hours you need to do these every hour, even waking up during night for best results.

Take your x-rays with you

Please take your original x-rays (both NECK AND SHOULDER) with you on disk or flash drive (or the originals on film)!

Originals (digital or on film) allow us to see more details. If you have MRI-s, you can take these with you too.

If some x-rays are missing and you are unable to have them done at your local clinic/hospital, then let us know in advance what x-rays are missing so we can prepare the referral note for the hospital where you can have the x-rays done.

In this case, please arrive to our Clinic some additional 2-3 h earlier (or previous day) from the arrival time mentioned in the confirmation.

This would enable you to have enough time so you can pick up the prepared referral note and go to hospital nearby to have missing x-rays done and return to our clinic for the procedure.

The cost of X-rays is not included in the cost of the procedure.

What to Expect After the OAT

Have a support person

Consider having someone here with you.

It is highly recommended that you have someone with you–especially for the first night after the procedure. They can also support you during the procedure. Most importantly after the procedure, it is helpful to have someone who can assist you with the exercises and provide moral support.

Learn to breathe

Please watch this video and learn how to breathe and move during the procedure.

Breathing correctly during the procedure and while doing the exercises is very helpful.

What to wear?

Wear comfortable clothes for the procedure (no shoes). Dr Austin Oolo needs to have access to your shoulder and neck.

For women we suggest you wear either a sports bra or a sleeveless top (tank-top, strap-top etc) – for your own comfort.

What is the OAT?

See the video on our Facebook page.
