Please call the Day Surgery Unit (*number below) one day prior to your surgery between 2:30 PM and 4:30 PM to confirm your appointment time (time required for your arrival at registration). This is generally 1 1/2 to 2 hours before your scheduled surgery time. If you are having your initial surgeon visit and consultation on the same day as your surgery, we ask you to arrive at least 2 hours before your surgery time to allow you to meet your surgeon and have any questions you may have fully answered and explained. We will discuss any special needs, review your prep and answer any questions you may have regarding your surgery.
If your surgery is scheduled for a Monday, please call on the prior Friday (3 days before surgery). If the day before your surgery is a Holiday, call this number 2 days in advance.
The Day Surgery Unit is open from 6:00 AM to 7:30 PM Monday through Friday
