If you are planning on having surgery, your physician will give you a packet to bring to the Day Surgery Department within three days of your surgery for a pre-operative visit. During this mandatory visit, you will meet with a nurse, who will clarify all information and complete your pre and post-operative instructions. If the tests are to be done at the hospital, it's very important that the tests are done no longer than three days before. Your physician may have requested reports to be evaluated from another physician's office.
Instructions for Family and Visitors who are waiting
Family members and visitors may wait in the Surgery Waiting Area during your surgery. A volunteer will be available to help answer their questions. Our nurses and physicians will look for your family there to give updates during and after your surgery.
