In a study conducted at Yale University on the effects of hypnosis right before outpatient surgery, the researchers described that the anxiety levels of those who underwent hypnosis were 68% lower after hypnosis. The hypnotic session lasted for 45 minutes with an anesthesiologist trained in hypnosis on hand, suggesting relaxation and well-being. Researchers emphasized the importance of reducing anxiety about surgery due to the fact that anxiety has been linked to increased need for painkillers and longer hospital stays.
“Guy Montgomery, Ph. D., of Mount Sinai School of Medicine in NYC and his colleagues conducted a clinical trial on 200 women to examine the effects of Hypnosis when given within one hour before breast cancer surgery. Patients in the Hypnosis group required less anesthesia than patients in the control group. They also reported less pain, nausea, fatigue, discomfort and emotional upset after surgery. They spent less time in surgery, about 11 minutes less,  and their surgical costs were reduced by about $773 per patient. – Journal of National Cancer Institute,  August 30, 2007
Dr. Gabor’s complementary program for preparation for surgery includes Medical Hypnotherapy, NLP, Suggestion Hypnotherapy and Guided Imagery, as powerful tools for preparing the mind and the body for surgery. This psychological program helps clients overcome anxiety and restless sleep and become mentally and emotionally ready for surgery. Dr. Gabor prepares the clients for a successful surgery and a fast recovery by offering empowering suggestions to  the subconscious mind. Some of the most important goals of hypnotherapy are to help clients return to a feeling of control, have a greater understanding of the mind-body connection, and become aware of the roles the conscious and subconscious thinking and belief systems play in healing and in creating our physiology.
