Your Surgery Day
A few of these were mentioned above, but here are a few important reminders for the day of your surgery:
- Fasting – Follow the appropriate fasting instructions provided during your pre-operative phone call. Depending on the type and time of your procedure, you may be asked to refrain from eating and drinking anything after midnight.
- Surgery Folder – At the time of scheduling the procedure, you will likely receive a surgery folder containing post-op appointment information and discharge instructions, etc. Please bring this folder with you on surgery day.
- Payment – If you are undergoing an elective procedure or are opting into an upgraded, non-covered service package, please be aware that we will collect payment at check-in.
- Driver – Please have a driver accompany you to and from your surgery, and remain in the waiting room while you undergo the procedure. Depending on the surgery, they can plan to be at our facility for 2.5 – 4 hours, considering there is the time needed in both the pre-op and post-op areas in addition to the time needed to perform the procedure itself.
