Getting Ready for Surgery & What To Bring
Each surgical procedure will be handled on a case by case basis, and our surgical staff will review details with you several days prior to surgery. Below are just a few common ways to prepare for a procedure at our surgery center.
- If you have any changes in your health condition before surgery, please notify the surgeon.
- You will need to have a driver for discharge. You should arrange in advance for someone to stay with you for 24 hours after surgery.
- Clear liquid diet up to two hours prior to arrival time:
Water (plain, carbonated or flavored), fruit juices without pulp, such as apple or white grape juice, fruit-flavored beverages, such as fruit punch or lemonade, carbonated drinks, including dark sodas (cola and root beer), Gelatin. Tea or coffee without milk or cream, strained tomato or vegetable juice, sports drinks, fat-free broth (bouillon), honey or sugar, hard candy -such as lemon drops or peppermint rounds. Popsicles.
- Solids up to 6 hours before appointment time we encourage a light meal for example eggs and toast.
- Wear loose comfortable clothing.
- Do not bring any valuables, you will have a locker for personal items and any electronic devices, but we encourage you to bring as little as possible.
- Bring a photo ID and your insurance card.
The type of anesthesia you are given will depend on your time in post op/recovery before being dismissed. You will have a registered nurse assigned to you the whole time you are recovering. Before being dismissed, your surgeon will personally evaluate you.
- Home care instructions are given to you prior to your surgery. These will be reviewed with you and you will receive a written copy of the instructions.
- Every surgery is followed up personally by your physician. It is common for our doctors to call you the evening following surgery to personally follow-up.
- All surgeries are seen within the first 24 hours for a post-op examination. Be prepared to come back in to our clinic the next morning.
- Because our surgeons are local and practice in the same location of your surgical procedure, you can expect personalized care with the same doctor throughout the entire process.
