FAQs about Surgery Services

This will be decided between you and your surgeon. Depending on your condition, they will likely try every other treatment option first before resorting to surgery. Regardless of the outcome, our goal is always to minimize your pain and recovery time.

Your surgeon will give you more detailed instructions, but here are some tips to help ensure a successful procedure:

  • Leave your valuables at home.
  • Try not to drink alcoholic beverages or smoke in the days leading up to your surgery.
  • Eat a light diner the evening before your surgery, and don’t eat or drink anything (including water and chewing gum) after midnight.
  • Shower both the evening before and the day of your surgery. Do not shave near your future incision site or use lotion, cream, powder or perfume after washing.
  • Wear clean, loose comfortable clothing and low-heeled shoes.

You can find more detailed information about preparing for your surgery here.

  1. Arrive at the surgical center at least an hour before your procedure.
  2. Complete the essential paperwork.
  3. Meet with your nurse, who will prepare you for surgery.
  4. Go to the surgery holding area, where a family member or significant other will be allowed to be with you. During surgery, your family and significant other can wait in the Surgery Waiting Room.
  5. After surgery, read your post-op instructions regarding your diet, medications and activities.
  6. Make arrangements ahead of time to have a responsible adult drive you home. Someone should stay with you for at least 24 hours following surgery.
