Certification and Safety

Before Your Surgery

  • We understand that the day of surgery can be overwhelming for you and your caregiver.  You are given a lot of information of what to expect, and that is why it is important to familiarize yourself with your surgeon's instructions preoperatively (e.g.  medications, bathing, drain care, etc).
  • Prepare supplies necessary for your recovery at home.  This list will be given to you at your Pre-Op.
  • Please call the surgery center to review your medical history and preoperative instructions.
  • You will need to make sure you have arranged a ride to and from your surgery.
  • Depending on your surgery you may be asked not to eat or drink anything, including water 8 hours prior to your surgery.
  • Medications to be taken on the day of surgery will be instructed by your surgeon, nurse, and anesthesia provider.  Make sure to bring all prescribed medication with you to your surgery.


Surgery Day

  • When you arrive at the center you will be taken to the preoperative area.  You will meet the nursing staff and have your vital signs taken and an IV placed.  Next you will see your surgeon and anesthesia provider before going back to the operating room.
  • Please wear loose fitting clothing (No jeans).  Button or zip front tops work best, no pullover shirts.  No jewelry or body piercings of any kind.
  • Do not wear contact lenses.
  • Do not bring money or any other valuables.
  • Please limit accompanying adults to two.
  • We use preoperative warming gowns on all of our patients.
  • We use Sequential Compression Devices (SCDís) to help prevent blood clots.


Your Recovery

  • We expect one to two hours maximum of recovery time, however every procedure is different.
  • When you are close to being ready to go home, we will bring your caregiver into the recovery area to give discharge instructions and teach drain care if necessary.
  • Our goal is to get you home in a safe and relatively comfortable manner.
  • In the days following your surgery you will receive a post-operative phone call from us to check on your progress.  You will also receive a call from your surgeon's office.
  • Please follow diet, medication, and activity instructions given by your physician.
  • During your recovery at home, should any questions or concerns arise please contact your surgeon.


Important Tips for Before and After Your Surgery

  • Follow Diet Instructions: You may receive special diet instructions to follow prior to your surgery.  If so, it is important to follow these guidelines carefully.  Be sure to follow your anesthesiologist's advice regarding the specific time to stop eating or drinking prior to your surgery.  Occasionally eating or drinking any substances can result in the need to cancel and reschedule your surgery.
  • Ask Your Doctor About Medicines: If you are currently taking aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) or naproxen sodium (Aleve), confirm with your doctor whether or not you need to stop taking these medicines before the day of your surgery.  These over-the-counter drugs can slow blood clotting.
  • Avoid All Alcohol: You should not drink any alcoholic beverages for a minimum of two days before your surgery.  Alcohol can respond to the medications you are taking and possibly interfere with your recovery, and may cause serious complications.
  • Stop Smoking: Smoking can be very harmful to your recovery.  Stop smoking at least one month before your scheduled surgery date.  This will improve your lung function and blood circulation, which will help you heal quick and healthy.
