  • Preparing: After the evaluation, you will be instructed on precautions and care for the days leading up to your surgery. This will include how to arrive and depart from the hospital, as well as what to eat and what medications to take. 
  • The day of: You will be instructed on what to wear and bring the day of your surgery. After you arrive, you will go through pre-operative preparation. 
  • Recovery: After your surgery, you will be taken to a recovery area where nurses will monitor your condition. Upon your return home, you will have instructions on how to care for yourself through the stages of recovery. 

Mobility Aid

Some surgeries will require that you use some type of mobility aid during your recovery process. If you have not used either crutches or a walker, you may need training. Your surgeon’s office will arrange this before your day of surgery.
