Day of Surgery
The safety and comfort of our patients is our number one concern. Our nursing staff will call you prior to your surgery to complete a health questionnaire and review your instructions. In addition, our nursing staff will visit with you the day of your surgery to ensure any questions or concerns are addressed.
- Please arrive on time so that your procedure may begin as scheduled. You will be notified of the time of arrival for your surgery when the nurse calls you to obtain a brief medical history and review the pre-operative instructions. Ensure your transportation home has been arranged.
- Upon arrival you will check in with the front desk and complete your registration. It is important that you bring your insurance card and drivers license the day of surgery.
- Your family will be asked to wait in the lobby and the surgeon will speak with them immediately following surgery.
- A nurse will escort you to the pre-operative area where you will change into a patient gown. In the pre-operative area you will be prepared for your surgery and visited by your surgeon.
