A nurse from the center will contact you prior to your surgery to review your health history, medications, and pre-operative instructions.

Notify your surgeon if there is a change in your physical condition such as a cold, fever or respiratory problems.

Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your operation, including no hard candy, or cigarettes. If your child is the patient, please be careful to enforce this. Also, please follow any other special instructions your surgeon may have given you. Failure to follow these instructions may result in cancellation of your surgery.

Please be sure to tell your surgeon if you are on any type of blood thinners or aspirin. Please do not take any medications after midnight unless instructed by your surgeon or the nurse at our center.

It is extremely important to arrange for a responsible adult to drive you home and remain with you for the first 24 hours after surgery.

For further questions, check out our FAQs.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing that is big enough to accommodate a large bandage after surgery. Wear comfortable shoes such as slip-on, no high heels.

You will need to change into a surgical gown.

Do not wear any jewelry (including body piercing), makeup or cologne. Do not bring any valuables with you.

Bring your driver’s license and all insurance cards with you. If your insurance company requires a co-pay or you have a balance, please bring some form of payment.

If your child is having surgery, feel free to bring a favorite stuffed animal or security blanket for added assurance.

If anesthesia has been administered, you must have a responsible adult present to drive you home and to care for you following surgery.

Your physician will provide post-operative instructions regarding diet, rest, exercise and medications. You will be provided with a written summary of these discharge instructions.

Once you leave the Surgery Center after your surgery, your doctor will provide the necessary follow up discussed at their offices. If you have any unexpected problems, please call your doctor.
