Preparing For & Recovering From Surgery

The coming weeks Before Your Surgery

Generally, your surgeon will schedule your surgery at The Surgical Center of Connecticut a few days or weeks in advance. There are various procedures which need to be completed before the day of surgery.

The surgeon will need to complete a medical history and physical examination which tells us about your medical conditions. The surgeon may do this at the time you are seen in his or her office, or the surgeon may send you to your internist or primary physician.

There are specific pre-operative testing requirements based on your medical history and your age. Any required testing will be completed prior to the day of surgery so that the results can be reviewed before you arrive at the center.

In addition to the information above, it is important for you to follow the guidelines before surgery to prevent delay or cancellations.
