What to Expect
Preparing for Your Surgery
Prior to surgery, a nurse from MidAmerica Surgery Center will call you. The purpose of this call is to obtain a brief medical history and baseline information about your health and medication usage so that we can take better care of you. This call also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
We will need a completed History and Physical form signed by your doctor releasing you for your procedure.
Please make arrangements for transportation home from the surgery center and for a responsible adult to be with you for 24 hours after surgery.
Please leave all money, credit cards, jewelry and valuables at home.
