Preparing for Surgery

A nurse from the Lakeside Surgery Center will contact you at least 24 hours before your procedure. Please notify your surgeon, before your scheduled procedure, if there is a change in your physical condition such as a cold, fever or respiratory problems.

Arrange for a responsible adult to drive you home and remain with you the first 24 hours after your procedure, unless otherwise instructed.

Do not eat or drink anything after midnight, unless otherwise specifically instructed by one of the surgery center nurses. Also, please follow any other specific instructions your surgeon may have given you. Failure to follow these instructions may result in cancellation of your procedure.

You will need to have all your lab work and any other required tests completed prior to the scheduled date of your procedure.
