Before Surgery

One to Two Days Before Surgery 

A nurse from the Orthopedic Associates Surgery Center will call prior to surgery, between the hours of 8:00am and 4:30pm. 

  • Please provide your cell and work numbers so it will be easier to reach you
  • The nurse will provide pre-operative instructions and questions regarding your medical history
  • A member of the business office staff will also contact you to review medical benefit coverage and personal responsibilities

Please call us after 2pm on the business day prior to your surgery to find out your arrival time.

The Evening Before Surgery

Do not eat or drink anything after midnight – not even water – unless otherwise instructed by the nurse. You should shower or bathe before coming to the Surgery Center.
