Surgery Day Information 

Below is a list of instructions to keep in mind the day of your surgery.

  • Do no eat or drink anything after midnight (12:00am) or your surgery will be forfeighted and postponed. 

  • Make sure your schedule is completely free the day of your surgery.

  • Wear comfortable clothing. You will also be provided with a hospital gown.

  • Avoid bringing any jewelry or valuables. Although we provide every patient secure storage space, it’s best to keep personal possessions to a minimum. 

  • Please arrive at the hospital 60-90 minutes prior to your scheduled surgery. You may go directly to the main entrance of the hospital and then make a right. The OR waiting room will be on your left. For assistance, front desk personnel can direct you to the appropriate area. 

  • All patients must be accompanied by a significant other, family member, or close friend to escort them home. We are not permitted to discharge a patient home unaccompanied--even by taxi--due to anesthesia. We also recommend that women bring their partners or loved ones for comfort and support. 

  • Surgery can take anywhere from 1 to 5+ hours depending on the severity of your case. 

  • Recovery rates vary, however, most of our patients are well enough to leave the day of surgery and return to the comfort of their own home.
