Day of Surgery

What you need to know for the Day of Surgery:

Check-in 
Please arrive one hour before your surgery and check-in at the registration desk to verify personal, escort and insurance information.

Following Admission
After checking in at Surgicare, you will be brought to the private room where the nurse will do a health interview and prepare you for surgery.  Your family or escort may be able to stay in the room with you until it is time for your surgery.  For procedures requiring an  anesthesiologist, he or she will discuss your anesthesia with you and answer any questions.  At the appropriate time you will be escorted to the operating room.  During surgery your escort will stay in a waiting area and will rejoin you in the Phase II recovery area after your surgery.  For longer cases we can take the contact information for your family/escort and we can contact them when you are ready to be discharged.
