Surgical Services

Your Surgical Procedure

On the day of surgery, wear comfortable clothing and shoes and avoid wearing jewelry and make-up. Please leave all valuables at home - including jewelry, purses, wallets, cell phones, pagers and laptops.

Check in at the Same Day Surgery desk on the second floor of the West Medical Office Building. Many insurance plans require a co-pay, deductible, or co-insurance payment prior to surgery. You will be notified of the amount in advance if this applies. Payment is expected at the time of service, if payment has not been previously arranged.

After checking in, you will be escorted to a private room where a staff member will confirm your insurance information and you will change into surgical attire. A registered nurse will complete your nursing assessment by asking you a series of questions. At this time you will sign your surgical consent form(s).

Approximately 30 minutes before your surgical procedure, you will be escorted from Same Day Surgery to the holding area and your visitors will be directed to the Same Day Surgery waiting area, where they will stay until your surgery is over and your surgeon speaks with them. In the holding area, anesthesia personnel will ask you questions about your present health, past medical illnesses, any medications you are taking, any allergies you may have and your reaction to any prior anesthetics and surgeries. An intravenous infusion will be started at this time.

A nurse will accompany you into the Operating Room. Anesthesia personnel will explain what is being done as your anesthesia is being administered and will closely monitor you throughout the procedure. If you have any questions about procedures being performed, please ask any of the staff members caring for you.
