  Evening Prior to Surgery

Please do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your surgery. This includes water, gum, candy, etc. Please follow these instructions, as they are very important for your safety. If you do not follow these instructions, we may need to delay, cancel and/or reschedule your surgery... unless instructed otherwise by your doctor.

If you are taking medications, please inform your doctor so that special instructions may be given.

Morning of Surgery

Please arrive one hour prior to your scheduled surgery time. Upon arrival, you will be asked to complete admission forms and sign consents.

Prior to your surgery, you will meet with the anesthesiologist and Pre-operative Nurse and will have the opportunity to ask any last minute questions.

Leave all valuables at home. You will be asked to remove all jewelry, contact lenses, etc, and therefore, we recommend that all valuables be left at home.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing that is easily removed for your convenience.

Transportation the day of surgery is necessary; you may not drive yourself home. Please bring a family member or friend who can drive you home and remain with you during the night. Please note that our waiting area is relatively small and therefore may not be able to accommodate a large number of people.

Please arrive one-hour prior to surgery.  You will receive a phone call the day before your surgery from Webster Surgery Center's Pre-operative Nurse.  If you do not receive a phone call by 3:00 p.m., please give our center a call at  510-451-1875.
