Before Your Surgery
A preoperative appointment with your nurse and anesthesiologist will provide you and your family with important information and support, aimed at reducing anxiety and answering important questions about the scheduled procedure. We understand that every patient has a unique set of needs and concerns and this session helps us to identify those special needs and tailor a plan of care according to your choices. Your preparation before surgery will be an important step in your recovery.

Recovery
Following a surgical procedure, patients are taken to Recovery. Our recovery rooms provide a centralized area for patient observation during the immediate postoperative and anesthesia period. The Recovery Room allows the staff to carefully observe each patient more closely and to monitor each individual during the "waking up" phase of your surgery. Each patient must meet specific recovery criteria prior to leaving the Recovery Room. Patients are then returned to the inpatient care unit or are in the care of the Same Day Surgery unit to await discharge instructions from their physician.
