After Your Surgery

  • You will rest in our recovery room, under the care of specially trained nurses. Your anesthesiologist will monitor your condition.
  • Our staff will answer your questions and give you postoperative instructions as ordered by your physician. You will receive a written copy of these instructions.
  • You may be dizzy or sleepy after your surgery, even after spending time in the recovery room. Do not attempt to drive or even take a taxi home alone. Please have a responsible adult with you to drive you home

Returning Home From Surgery

  • Even though you may feel fine, have someone plan to stay at home with you through the night. Do not make any important decisions, consume alcoholic beverages, take medications not prescribed by your surgeon, drive or operate machinery during the 24- hour period following your surgery
  • Plan to take it easy for a few days, as the majority of patients do not feel up to their typical activities right away, usually due to general tiredness or surgical discomfort.
  • Call your surgeon if you have questions about what you can and cannot do, when you can return to work and your regular activities
