Report to the Surgery Center on the second floor of Hayes Hall two hours prior to your surgery. If you have completed your pre-admission tests in advance, please arrive at the Surgery Center one-and-a-half (1-1/2) hours prior to your surgery.
Patients 18 years of age or older will be asked to read and sign a consent form. Minors or patients unable to sign for themselves must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who will be asked to sign the consent form.
Anticipate a stay of approximately one to two hours following your surgical procedure. Our staff will monitor your condition and you will be discharged when the anesthesiologist and surgeon feel you are ready to go home. You will receive any necessary instructions for post-operative care from your surgeon and our nursing staff.
You will not be permitted to drive home. Please make arrangements to have someone accompany you to and from the hospital.
