Before and After Day Surgery

As a day surgery patient you will:

  • Come to the hosp ital on the day of your surgery
  • Arrive 3 hours before your scheduled surgery time or as directed by your surgeon’s office
  • Have your surgery done in the Operating Room (OR)
  • Return home after your surgery

Your surgery may be cancelled if you are late.

Delays in the OR may cause a change in your surgery. There is a chance that your surgery could be cancel led if there is an emergency. If this should happen, your surgeon’s office will call you to arrange a new date.

You may need some tests before your surgery. This will depend on your general health or the type of surgery you are having. Same Day Surgery staff will contact you to arrange your Pre Operative testing if needed.
