General Suggestions for the Day of Surgery

- Follow Dr. Broadway’s instructions regarding avoiding food and drink before the surgery. Preoperative instructions are crucial to the outcome of your procedure, so pay careful attention.
- Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and leave valuables at home.
- Have a friend or family member on standby to drive you home after the procedure and, if possible, to stay and care for you for several days.
- Remove jewelry and nail polish before surgery.
After Your Procedure is Complete
Immediately following surgery, you will recover in the post operative waiting area. Staff will be there to take care of you and observe you as the effects of anesthesia wear off. From the postoperative area, you will either go home or to another room. If you’re going home, the recovery nurse will provide written instructions from Dr. Broadway to follow closely as you recover at home.
