Frequently Asked Questions

What if I cannot make my appointment?
Please notify the surgeon and the surgery center as early as possible if you cannot make your scheduled appointment. Early notification can help us better accommodate you and other patients.

What should I wear?
Please wear comfortable clothing. Button-down shirts or blouses are best, along with loose fitting pants. Wear comfortable shoes. Leave all jewelry at home.

Who may accompany me?

Yes. You can take a shower, bathe, brush your teeth, etc. Please do not use make up, hair spray, lotion, nail polish or toiletries. These may interfere with the intraoperative monitoring and preparation of the surgical site.
