Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How soon should I arrive before my surgery?
A: If you are having anesthesia/sedation, you will be asked to arrive 1 hour and 30 minutes prior to the time of your surgery.
Q: Will my family be able to stay with me while I am being prepared for my surgery?
A: Yes! You may have a friend or family member with you during the preparation for surgery. We prefer that you limit visitors to two friends or family members.
