  • When it is time for your procedure, you will be escorted to our pre-operative area by a nurse and prepped for your procedure.

  • Please leave any valuables and jewelry with your family member.

  • A nurse, the anesthesiologist and your doctor will meet with you and review your medical history, discuss the type and method of anesthesia you’ll be receiving, verify your procedure and mark the operative site, if necessary. You may have an IV started at this time.

  • Due to the size of our pre-operative area and the need to insure privacy to all of our patients, it may not always be possible for a family member to wait with patients in this area prior to the procedure.

  • After you have been prepped for your procedure and if possible, a single family member or significant other is permitted in the pre-operative area with you while you wait for your procedure to begin.
