Getting Ready for Surgery

It is important to follow your doctor's instructions to get ready for your surgery.  If you have not received directions from your doctor, call his/her office and inquire about it.  You can expect one of our nurses to phone you the day before your surgery and remind you of some of the pre-operative tasks to remember like those listed below.
