Surgical Patient Education Instructions / Preparations

For a Better Recovery

If you have questions about the surgical procedure that has been recommended for you, be sure to ask your surgeon. It is your right to be informed, and it is your responsibility to ask questions if there is something you do not understand. If a change in your physical condition occurs before surgery (such as a cold or fever), contact your doctor.
