What to Do Before Your Surgery?

LOBBY TO OR1_edited.jpg

Please bathe or shower prior to your surgery. Do not use lotion or oils after bathing and do not wear makeup or nail polish.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing, such as a sweatsuit and easy-to-button shirts or blouses that are large enough to accommodate large bandages after surgery. Wear comfortable footwear, not high heels and/or boots.

  • If you wear contacts or glasses, please bring a case for their safekeeping. We provide containers for any dentures or bridgework

 

Please leave all valuables, including jewelry and cash, other than your method of payment, at home. We cannot be responsible for damaged or lost property. Jewelry cannot be worn during surgery. 

 

It is your responsibility in advance to arrange for a responsible adult to drive you home.

 

Be prepared to sign a form giving consent for the procedure. If the patient is under the age of 18, the parent or guardian must accompany the patient, sign the consent form, and remain at the facility for the duration of the surgery.
