Learn what to expect the day of your surgery. Follow the guidelines carefully, unless your surgeon has directed you otherwise.
Please arrange to have your pre-operative testing done by your primary care doctor. If you do not have a primary care doctor, your surgeon can refer you to a West Suburban doctor. Your surgeon will also provide you an order for the diagnostic tests required for your procedure. Please note: If testing is not completed before the day of your procedure, your surgery may be rescheduled.
All jewelry, cell phones, purse, money or other valuables! When in doubt, ask your nurse.
If you need to cancel your surgery, call your doctor’s office first. If you’re feeling ill the morning of the surgery, please notify the hospital so we can determine if your procedure should be rescheduled.
