Preparing for your surgery

There are several things you will need to do in the days before surgery to prepare for your procedure. Don’t hesitate to contact us at your convenience if you have questions about how to prepare for surgery.

  • Please arrange for a responsible person to bring you to the hospital on the day of your surgery. That person will also need to receive your discharge instructions after your surgery and drive you home. You should arrange for someone to stay with you for 24 hours after your surgery.

  • If registration has not contacted you prior to your appointment, please call them at 207.973.8900 or 1.888.973.8900 between 7 am and 7 pm, Monday though Friday.

  • A nurse will call you prior to your surgery to review your health history, confirm your time, review your pre-surgery instructions, and answer any questions you may have. Please have a list of your medications, including dosage and frequency, available during this call.
