Before Your Surgery Checklist

Follow these guidelines the day before your surgery to ensure that your operation goes smoothly.

  • If needed, our staff will contact you by phone a few days prior to surgery to obtain personal, financial, and medical information.
  • If there is any change in your physical condition, such as cold, fever, infection, or worsening condition, notify your physician before coming to the center.
  • If you suspect that you are pregnant, please notify your surgeon. Anesthesia and medications can be harmful to the developing fetus.
  • Follow your surgeon’s instructions for NPO (nothing by mouth) to prepare for your surgery. Your surgeon will give you instructions on when to stop eating and drinking. This will reduce the possibility of nausea and vomiting following anesthesia. You may brush your teeth, remembering not to swallow anything. Refrain from the use of mints, chewing gum or cigarettes. Failure to follow these instructions may result in cancellation of your surgery.
  • Routine medications authorized by your physician may be taken with a sip of water early in the morning before arriving to the center. If you are diabetic or on blood pressure or heart medication, obtain specific instructions from your physician. DO NOT BRING IN ANY PERSONAL MEDICATION(S).
  • It is your responsibility to arrange in advance for a responsible adult to drive you home and remain with you the first 24 hours after surgery. You cannot drive yourself or be left alone. You can use regular taxi or public transportation only when accompanied by a responsible adult. If you do not have anyone to accompany you, you will be required to use a Medi-Cab. You will be responsible for all transportation expenses.
  • Please call your surgeon’s office if you have questions regarding your surgery schedule time.

Day of Surgery

To help us meet all your needs, please follow these guidelines:

  • Be prepared to sign documents throughout your care. No visitors will be allowed in clinical areas. If the patient is under 18, ONE parent or legal guardian must accompany the patient in the pre-op area to answer any questions from the pre-op nurse and/or anesthesiologist and sign the forms.
  • Please bathe or shower prior to your surgery. Remove all makeup, nail polish, jewelry, and do not use lotions or oils after bathing.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing such as sweat-suite and easy-to-button shirts or blouses that are big enough to accommodate a large bandage after surgery. Wear comfortable shoes; no high heels, please.
  • Leave all valuables, including jewelry, at home. We cannot be responsible for damaged or lost property.
  • Please bring the following:
    • Insurance cards and a valid picture I.D.
    • A form of payment for copay/co-insurance (due at time of service).
    • A case for your contact lenses or glasses.
    • A list of your daily medications and allergies.
    • A copy of your living will or advance directive if you have one.

If you have any additional questions, please contact your surgeon’s office.
