What should I bring to the surgical facility, the day of my surgery?
You should have been contacted by the surgical facility where your surgery is to be performed. They should have advised you what to bring to the surgical facility. Make sure that you bring all of the documents that they requested, including your photo ID and insurance card.
It is a good idea to bring something to occupy yourself (ie. newspaper, magazine, book, laptop or Ipad, etc.) as there may be some waiting time.
If I have provided you a brace, sling or crutches or you have been provided an ice machine sleeve, please bring these to the surgical facility.
Someone will need to drive you home from the surgical facility. They do not need to stay with you at the surgical facility, but they will need to be available when you are ready to leave.
