Prior to the date of your visit you will be contacted via telephone by our Preoperative Nurse Counselor who will give you instructions specific to your procedure.
You will be asked to arrive at the Center one to two hours prior to your surgery to allow time for admitting. On Arrival a nurse will review your health history and obtain vital signs. Minor lab work and EKG may be performed. You will change into a surgical gown. Anesthesia personnel will consult with you in the pre-operative are.
Your surgeon performs the procedure with the support of our experienced staff. After your surgery, you will be transferred to our fully-equipped recovery room where you will be attended by your recovery room nurses, under the supervision of the anesthesiologist until you are ready to go home, usually an hour or two after surgery.
The Surgicenter's staff, policies, procedures, equipment and ancillary service meet the highest national standards for safety and quality. Experienced nurses, technicians and support staff are trained and qualified according to the same stringent criteria required in the finest hospitals. While problems rarely occur, our Center is fully equipped with all the necessary staff and equipment to care for a patient who has an unexpected occurrence.
