One of our nurses will contact you a few days prior to your surgery to review your health history and answer any questions you might have about the OOSC.
We will also contact you the day prior to your surgical procedure regarding:
Please make sure you provide a phone number where you can be reached during the day. (Whatever number you give the Surgeon office, is the number we utilize; if additional numbers are needed, please provide all pertinent numbers.)
During the pre-operative phone call, a nurse will give you instructions when you need to stop eating, drinking, and chewing gum before your surgery. It is very important for these instructions to be followed or your surgery may be delayed or cancelled.
Additional requirements to note:
Interpreters are available upon request.
If you will be unavailable, please call us at (515) 224-5232 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on the day before your surgery.
