    Surgical Services

    We are proud to offer quality care, specialized equipment, and advanced technology in a safe, family-friendly environment.

    It is important for you to follow the guidelines given to you before surgery to prevent delay or cancellations.

    Preparing for surgery can feel overwhelming or scary if you don't know what to expect. You may have some unanswered questions and worries that make you feel this way. Knowing what to expect will help you feel less nervous and more in control.

    After Surgery

    Once you are in stable condition, you will be discharged. It is normal to experience sleepiness and dizziness for 12 to 24 hours after surgery.

    Post Care: You will receive verbal and written post-surgical care instructions (please follow these instructions). Your escort must be available to discuss and sign these instructions before you will be allowed to go home. If you experience anything unusual after your surgery, please call your surgeon or go to the nearest emergency room. A nurse from our center will call you the next day after your surgery to check on your recovery.

    Transportation: DO NOT PLAN TO DRIVE yourself home or use public transportation after your procedure. A friend or relative or dedicated caregiver MUST stay with you for 24 hours after being released from the hospital.
