Preparing for surgery

Preparing for an operation can be overwhelming and frightening, but we are committed to ensuring you feel fully prepared.

Before surgery and pre-admission

Your pre-admission visit takes place one to two weeks before your scheduled procedure. During this visit, we will obtain vital information before your surgical operation. Depending on the number of tests ordered by your doctor, your pre-admission appointment may take about one hour.

Before the day of your surgery, you will be provided with instructions to follow to ensure a successful procedure. Please follow them to reduce the risk of infection or any complications.
