Day of Surgery

  • It is important that you arrive promptly at the scheduled time.
  • We encourage you to ask any questions you might have.
  • Let the staff know of any special needs you might have.
  • Bring a picture ID and insurance cards with you. Bring forms (pre-op orders, history and physical copies of labs and EKG) from your physician if requested.
  • If you are taking prescription medications, bring your medications or a complete list of your medications, including the dosage and frequency.
  • Arrange for a family member or friend to wait in the waiting room. You must have a responsible person to drive you home and make any necessary stops at the pharmacy after your surgery.
  • Do not wear make-up.
  • Valuables (i.e. all jewelry and money) should be left at home.
  • You may wear glasses, but no contact lenses.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing and shoes.
