We understand that you may have some questions and anxiety about your surgery. That is normal. It is our job to put your mind at ease, prepare you for your surgery, and help you with recovery. We will be there every step of the way.

Please see “Surgery Instructions” for specific instructions related to your surgery.  These instructions will provide you guidance regarding taking your medications before surgery, how to prepare your body for the surgery, what you will need to bring at check in, and the process after surgery.  One of our nurses will be calling you approximately one week before surgery to review these instructions instructions and answer your questions.

To prevent any surgery cancellations, it is very important to remember not to eat or drink after the times you have been instructed and to have an escort available to give you a ride home after discharge. What to Expect. Click Here for Forms.
