Preparing for Surgery

General Surgical Information

We are pleased that you will be having your surgical procedure with us, and are confident that you will have the very best surgical experience possible.

About Your Surgery

Your physician will discuss your operation with you during your office visit, and your surgical appointment will be scheduled at that time. Please be sure to tell your doctor about any existing medical conditions and any medication that you are currently taking. 

After your surgery is scheduled, you will receive a phone call from a member of our nursing staff to obtain a basic health history and to review your preoperative instructions. Or, you may call us at (614) 310-7368 to receive your instructions. It is very important that you speak with someone from the Center prior to the date of your surgery.
