You will have a pre-surgical appointment where your medical history will be reviewed, you will discuss any tests needed prior to receiving surgery, review any medications you are currently taking, etc. You will also be given information on how to prepare your home for your return from surgery.
After your surgery, you will be taken to the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), also called Recovery. A nurse will be by your side as you awake from surgery. The nurse will check your vital signs and ask you to rate your pain on a scale of 0-10. You will stay in the PACU until your pain is under control and your vital signs stable. A nurse will remain in the room with you while you are in the PACU, typically 1-2 hours. When you are ready to be taken to your room, your family will be allowed to join you.
Don't wait, make your appointment right now online.
