The following information will prepare you for your scheduled procedure from pre-admission to discharge and answer the most commonly asked questions.

About Scheduling

Our clinic will call with your surgical date. A nurse from SEO Surgery Center will contact you with the time and specific instructions.

Before your procedure

A nurse from SEO Surgery Center will contact you one or two days prior to surgery to review instructions and confirm your admission time.

  • If you take any prescribed medication on a daily basis, please consult our nursing staff regarding whether you should take them on the day of the surgery. Our nurses will provide instructions for taking or discontinuing medications before surgery.
  • Our nurses will arrange any lab-work or diagnostic studies that you may need before surgery.
  • Patients scheduled for early morning procedures will be asked to abstain from eating and drinking after midnight before the surgery.
  • Do not wear contact lenses the day of your surgery. Bring a case for eyeglasses, dentures or hearing aids so they will stay safe during your surgery.
  • Please leave all valuables including jewelry, body piercings, money, and credit cards at home. Please wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing that will be easy to put on following your surgery.

Upon Arrival

When you arrive at the center, please check with the receptionist. After checkin, you will be greeted by one of our nurses and asked to change into a patient gown and slipper socks. In the preoperative area, you will be seen by an anesthesia provider, a nurse, and your surgeon. You will have the opportunity to review your postoperative care instructions and ask any questions at this time. Your companion may choose to stay in our waiting area or a staff member will be happy to make a telephone call when you are prepared to leave.

After Your Procedure

You will rest in our recovery area for a short time and you will be offered a light snack/ beverage. Your surgeon will explain the outcome of the surgery and answer some of your or your family’s questions.


You will not be permitted to drive yourself home following discharge from the center. You must have a responsible adult driver. We ask you handle these arrangements in advance. You will be provided with written discharge instructions to take home and review.
