After Surgery

Once you meet our discharge criteria and are in stable condition, you will be discharged.  Most patients are discharged 30 minutes to two hours after surgery.  It is normal to experience sleepiness and dizziness for 12 to 24 hours after surgery.

Post Care
You will receive verbal and written post-surgical care instructions and are encouraged to please follow these instructions.  Your escort must be available to discuss and sign these instructions before you will be allowed to go home.  If you experience anything unusual after your surgery, please call your surgeon or go to the nearest emergency room.

A member of our staff will call you the day after your surgery to check on your recovery.

Transportation –  If you are having anesthesia with your procedure, DO NOT PLAN TO DRIVE yourself home after your procedure.  A friend, relative or dedicated caregiver MUST stay with you for 24 hours.
