Preparing for Your Surgery
One of the most important factors for successful surgery is gaining an understanding of your entire surgical process. Preparing for orthopedic surgery or spine surgery ahead of time can promote a much better experience and outcome.
Please join us for one of our free pre-surgery workshops to learn what to expect and to gain tools for preparing for orthopedic surgery or spine surgery.
In addition, we've compiled general information we hope you will find helpful in preparing for your upcoming surgery: Prepare for Your Procedure.
This booklet will provide you with important information about:
• what you can do to prepare before you come to the hospital
• how to prepare your home
• what to expect in the hospital
Each patient receives treatment tailored to meet their individual needs, so your instructions may vary depending on your specific procedure. We encourage you to ask your orthopedic and spine doctors and nurses any questions you may have about preparing for orthopedic surgery.
