St. Peters Ambulatory Surgery Center

The Day of Surgery

Arrive promptly at the scheduled time. This will allow adequate time for all necessary admission procedures.

Please bring your insurance identification cards and photo I.D. If special financial arrangements are necessary, please call the surgery center prior to admission.

Be sure to bring any paperwork your doctor gave you, such as test results or your medical history and a list of medications you are taking.

Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing.

Upon arrival, you will change into a gown which we provide. You will be asked to remove contact lenses, dentures and jewelry.

After surgery, you will be moved to the Recovery Area where you will be closely monitored until you are ready to go home.

When you are fully awake, your family member will be able to join you. Although the times may vary, most patients are discharged 1 to 2 hours after surgery. Please have a responsible adult available at the surgery center.

It is perfectly normal to feel discomfort in the area of your surgery. You may also experience some drowsiness or dizziness, depending on the kind of anesthesia you received.
