Important Pre-Surgical Information

When you are scheduled for surgery, you will receive a call from a pre-surgical screening nurse at the Highland Surgery Center. It is very important that you follow the instructions given to you during pre-surgical screening, or by your surgeon about eating and taking medications before surgery. There may be guidelines that are specific to you, the procedure you're having, and the surgeon performing the procedure. Failure to follow the instructions could lead to a delay or cancelation of your procedure.
