Surgery cases are scheduled based on multiple factors including your surgeon’s availability, length of surgery, necessary equipment, type of anesthesia and the patient’s age and current health. Once you have selected a surgery date with your surgeon, we cannot guarantee your surgery at a specific time and you and your driver home need to be available at any time on your scheduled day of surgery. You will be given an arrival time and estimated time of surgery by the phone nurse during your pre-op phone interview. However, you will be notified the day prior to surgery of any known changes to your arrival or surgery time. There could also be an unexpected delay once you arrive as the surgery before you may take longer than expected which may delay your estimated start time.
