Preparing for Surgery

Once you and your doctor agree on a surgical treatment plan, ask lots of questions. Learn about what the pre-op period, actual procedure, and recovery process will look like. This will allow you to make the best arrangements for surgery success!

Before your surgery, you should make every effort to be as healthy as possible. Quit smoking, eat healthily, exercise if you can, get any tests done, and talk to your doctor about your current medications. You should also make arrangements for your recovery, fill any post-op medications, common-use items within reach, and arrange for your transportation home and post-op care if needed.
