Day of Surgery

Please arrive on time and make arrangements for a responsible adult to drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours after surgery. You are not permitted to leave alone after receiving anesthesia. Transportation via taxi is not permitted unless a responsible adult is riding with you.  While you are in surgery, your family member, friend, or significant other will be asked to wait in the front lobby waiting area. Your surgeon will speak with him/her immediately following your surgery. If he/she is not present when the surgeon attempts to speak with him/her, he/she may need to wait to speak with your surgeon at your next office appointment.
