Preparing for Your Stay
Preparing for surgery typically begins with a pre-admission clinic appointment. In order to prepare you for the operation, a nurse answers your questions and discusses what to expect during your surgery and recovery.
X-rays, lab work and other tests will be preformed during this visit. Discharge plans will also be discussed and may include discussions with a therapist, dietitian or other health professional. We want to help put you at ease and give you a complete picture of your road to recovery.
Be sure to schedule your visit within two weeks of your surgery date. Your visit will take about one hour.
Our pre-operative services help prepare you for a successful and safe hospital experience. Our team works with you to identify and modify risk factors to ensure the best possible outcome and to prevent last-minute delays and cancellations of surgery.
