If you need surgery
Sometimes, surgery is the best way to get you feeling good again. We’ll guide you every step of the way. You’ll meet with your surgeon ahead of time. And the day before surgery, you’ll have a pre-op education session.
A nurse will walk through everything you can expect the day of your surgery. You’ll see what the pre-op area looks like, find out what to expect during recovery and have a chance to ask questions. You’ll also have your lab work done during this time. You’ll walk away ready to face your surgery with confidence.
