After your procedure you will be moved to our fully equipped recovery area. Here your nurses, anesthesiologist and/or physician will monitor your condition until you are ready to go home. Although the time varies, most patients are discharged one to two hours after surgery.

You may experience some drowsiness, dizziness, or nausea, depending on the type of anesthesia you received. Our staff will provide you with ordered medication to help you achieve optimal comfort. Your pain will be managed based on the following assessment scale:

0

Your companion may rejoin you once you are stable in the recovery room. Here you will be given beverages and crackers, as appropriate. Your physician will provide specific written instructions for care at home during your recovery. Your nurse will review these instructions with you and your companion. You will receive a written copy to refer to while recovering at home. Your physician’s after-hours phone number will be provided to you in the event you have questions upon returning home.
