Two days before your surgery date, a staff member will call you to confirm your surgery time. They will ask you questions regarding current or past medical conditions, allergies, and medications you are taking. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have, and be sure to let the staff know of any special needs.
A staff member will also call you regarding your financial responsibilities.
Your doctor or the nurse will instruct you as to WHAT TIME YOU ARE TO STOP EATING AND DRINKING prior to surgery.
If you take medication for any conditions, ask your doctor and/or the nurse whether or not to take it the day of surgery.
For women, if there is any possibility that you are pregnant, please notify your doctor and/or the nurse.
Leave all valuables at home including all jewelry and wallets.
Please notify your surgeon of any change in your health, such as a cold, fever or sore throat.
For your safety, please arrange for an adult family member or friend to drive you home. They will be required to wait in the waiting room for you until you are discharged. It may be advisable for a responsible adult to stay with the patient for 12 to 24 hours after the procedure.
