Before your surgery

If you get a fever, cold or rash before your surgery, you should call and report a change in your health. Your surgeon may recommend postponing the procedure. The administrator at our Same Day Surgery Center calls patients after 2:00pm the day before the surgery. This call is to confirm surgery and arrival times.

If you have any questions about your surgery, please call (727) 341-4812.
