Surgery education

Whether you’re scheduled for your first operation or you’ve had others in the past, surgery is a major event. That’s why we help you know what to expect, focus on your comfort, and communicate openly with you and your loved ones.

  • Before surgery, a nurse will call you at home or speak to you during pre-admission testing to review any chronic health conditions and medications, explain what to expect the day of surgery, and create a recovery plan specifically tailored for you.
  • During your procedure, we take special precautions to protect your delicate skin, fragile joints and bones. We carefully monitor your anesthesia and medications to ensure safety and comfort. We circulate heated air through your gown to keep you warm and use gel packs to cushion your body.
  • After your procedure, to help ease your recovery, we give you extra time to recuperate in a peaceful environment. Our nurses will explain what you need to do to make a seamless return home or to another care setting. Once you’ve left the hospital, a nurse will call to make sure you are doing well and your needs are being met.
