Preparing for Surgery
Before having surgery, talk to your surgeon about the planned procedure's risks, benefits and alternative treatments. Once you and your surgeon have decided a surgical procedure is the right option, you will need to prepare the following items for your procedure.
Day of Surgery Instructions
Once you are at the hospital, the same-day surgery nurses will prepare you for your procedure. They will answer your questions and provide your nursing care for your inpatient/outpatient stay. Prior to arriving at the hospital, make sure follow these instructions.
After Your Surgery
Your same-day surgery nurse will prepare you for your discharge and review all instructions with you and your adult support person. If you are an outpatient, a nurse will contact you by phone one or two days after your procedure to see how you are doing and if you have any questions or concerns. If we are unable to reach you by phone, we will contact you through the mail.
