Preparing for Surgery
Once you and your Doctor decide that surgery will help you, you'll need to learn what to expect from the surgery and create a treatment plan for the best results afterward. Preparing mentally and physically for surgery is an important step toward a successful result. Understanding the process and your role in it will help you recover more quickly and have fewer problems.

What to bring the day of surgery
Who should come to day surgery
A responsible adult must accompany you if you are going to receive anesthesia or sedation. He or she must bring you home. Arrange to have an adult stay with you overnight.
The Day of Surgery
You must remove all jewelry (including navel or other piercings), nail polish, acrylic nails and contact lenses before coming to the hospital. Please leave all valuables at home.
Once you are settled in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (recovery room), the nurse will bring your family member or friend to be with you.
Your nurse will teach you and your family member or friend about your home care needs. He or she will give you written instructions. Once your family member or friend has learned the care, he or she may take you home. The nurse will give you the telephone number of the surgeon and the anesthesia doctor on call.
