The Day Before Surgery
The day before surgery, please expect two phone calls. An anesthesiologist from the surgery center will attempt to call you at the number you provided to your physician’s office. This phone call is very important and is made in an effort to speak with you about your medical and surgical history. A Pre-Op nurse will call to provide your surgery check-in time. They will also review any information you completed online (Simple Admit) which may require clarification.
- Nothing to eat or drink after midnight the night prior to your surgery. (No water, food, gum, cough drops, smoking, etc.)
- If you fail to follow this instruction it is likely that your surgery will be cancelled.
