  • When preparing for surgery, don’t be afraid to do research. Feel free to ask your doctors about their qualifications or the details around your procedure and recovery.
  • On the day of surgery, you will receive a pre-operative assessment, discuss anesthesia with your anesthesiologist and review your operation with the surgeon.
  • Depending on the operation, you may be able to leave the same day if you have a ride home. If not, you will stay in the hospital and be monitored closely by staff to ensure a quick, safe recovery.
