After Your Surgery

After Your Surgery: Once you are in stable condition, you will be discharged to your car by wheelchair.  If you received sedation, you must have an adult present to drive you home and to care for you following surgery. It is normal to experience sleepiness and dizziness for 12 to 24 hours after surgery.

Instructions: Your physician will provide post-operative instructions regarding diet, rest, exercise and medications.  You will be provided with a written summary of these discharge instructions.

Transportation: DO NOT PLAN TO DRIVE yourself home or use public transportation after your procedure.

Day after Surgery:  A nurse from the Surgery Center will attempt to call you the next business day to check on your progress and discuss any questions you may have.  If you have any unexpected problems, please call your doctor. If he/she does not respond, please go to the nearest emergency room.

This is the best run facility I have ever been in.”
