After Your Procedure

  1. After your procedure, you will be moved to our fully equipped Post Anesthesia Care Unit where our trained recovery room nurses will observe you closely for about 30 minutes until you are ready to go home. 
  2. Your physician will provide instructions regarding diet, rest, exercise and medications.  The center will provide you with a written summary of these instructions before you are discharged. 
  3. If you would like your physician to talk to a family member or significant other, please have them wait in the lobby.
  4. It is normal to feel drowsy after receiving an anesthetic, therefore the following restrictions will be in place after your procedure for 24 hours:
    • No driving and operating equipment
    • No signing important papers
    • No making of significant decisions
    • No drinking alcoholic beverages
