After Procedure

  • Following your procedure you will be taken to the recovery area.  Once you are in stable condition, you will be discharged.  Most patients are discharged twenty to thirty minutes after surgery.  It is normal to experience sleepiness and dizziness for 12 to 24 hours after surgery. 
  • You will receive verbal and written post-surgical care instructions (please follow these instructions).  Your escort must be available to discuss and sign these instructions before you will be allowed to go home.  If you experience anything unusual after your surgery, please call your surgeon or go to the nearest emergency room.
  • A nurse from the surgery center may call you the day after your procedure to check on the status of your recovery and they will be available to answer any questions that you may have.
