To make your surgery day run smoothly and quickly, pre-registration will be taken care of during scheduling of your surgery day.
You will be given an arrival time 2 days before your scheduled surgery day.
If your surgeon orders labs or EKGs, all tests must be completed a week prior to your surgery. Our anesthesiologist will review all labs and EKGs during this time.
