In order to not have your surgery cancelled:

Plan to arrive at the center one hour and thirty minutes prior to your surgery unless told otherwise by the surgery center. You will be meeting with your anesthesiologist and preparing for your surgery during this time. Check in at the reception desk upon arrival and you will be directed from there. Please remember your insurance card and drivers license.
Please do not bring valuables with you to the center. Do not wear jewelry or hair ornaments. Jewelry poses a safety hazard and the potential for loss.
We recommend you stop taking any anti-inflammatory medications 2 weeks before your surgery. ALWAYS confirm this with your surgeon. This includes Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin, Naprosyn, Voltaren, etc. Notify us of any other medications you may be taking including homeopathic remedies.
DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING AFTER MIDNIGHT. THIS INCLUDES WATER, GUM OR CANDY. IF YOU DO YOUR SURGERY WILL BE CANCELLED.
Upon discharge from the center You must have a ride home. You cannot leave alone. If you are taking a taxi or public transportation you must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
You may expect a call from a nurse prior to surgery to confirm your surgery and your health history. If you are 65 or over, have a history of asthma requiring daily medication, hypertension, heart disease, sleep apnea, obesity or diabetes, you must have a recent physical examination & EKG from your primary care physician. This should be faxed to the surgery center prior to surgery. (fax # 415-474-1365).
Please remember that most insurance plans have a co-insurance and/or deductible. We make every attempt to estimate your final portion of the bill prior to your surgery. We will require payment of your portion on the date of service. We do take credit cards. Your final bill cannot be calculated until the procedure has been completed and we know the exact final procedures performed.

We are very pleased that you have chosen to have your surgery at HealthSouth. We will do everything we can to make your stay here as comfortable as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call and speak with one of our nurses or the administrator.
