General Instructions & What to Expect
As early as possible before your surgery, fill out the pre-admission forms included in the packet from your surgeon.
Pre-operative Phone Calls
(does not apply to Pain Management patients)
A nurse will call you 2-3 days before your procedure to gather important information about your medical history and current health status including what medications you are taking. She will also give you pre-op instructions that you must follow.
The day before your procedure a nurse will call with your time of arrival. Please note that due to changes in the schedule, your arrival time may change. We do our best to mitigate the impact of last minute changes but it is not always possible.
Before your Procedure
- Don't drink alcohol for 24 hours before your procedure.
- Don't smoke after midnight the night before your procedure.
- Don't take medication containing aspirin for 24 hours before your procedure unless directed to do so by your physician.
- Failure to follow any of these instructions could result in your procedure being postponed or cancelled by the anesthesiologist.
Day of your Procedure
- Wear loose comfortable clothing that you can change easily.
- Don't wear jewelry or watches and remove all body piercings including tongue piercing.
- Don't use powders or lotions. Light makeup and deodorant are OK. You should not wear eye makeup if you are having an eye procedure.
- If you are accompanying a minor child who is having a procedure, bring documentation of your guardianship if you are not a parent.
- Expect to spend about 30-60 minutes at the Center when your surgery is over. This is the average time needed for recovery and post-operative instructions; your needs may be different.
- A responsible adult must drive you home and be available to stay with you for 24 hours following your procedure. Your procedure will be cancelled if you do not have a responsible adult companion.
After your Procedure
- Don't drive or operate machinery, make any important decisions, or drink alcoholic beverages for 24 hours after your surgery.
- Be sure to follow post-operative instructions given to you at the Center.
- Be sure to have someone stay with you for 24 hours after your procedure. This is required for your safety.
