The instructions below are provided to patients as general guidelines. Your physician may also provide instructions specific to the procedure being performed. If you have any questions, please contact the surgery center at 541-757-8100.
Your family member or caregiver needs to be available in the surgery center lobby to speak with the surgeon. Patients will speak with their surgeons at their first post-op visit.
It is normal to feel dizzy and/or a little sleepy after surgery. For this reason, do not drive, drink alcoholic beverages, operate machinery, sign legal documents or make important decisions for 24 hours after your surgery or while taking pain medication.
A registered nurse will call you the day following surgery to answer any additional post-op questions you may have.
