Preparing for Your Surgery or Hospitalization
In the course of your treatment, you and your doctor may decide surgery is necessary. It helps to know what steps to take when you're preparing for a surgical procedure.
Because we want to give you the best care possible, we are constantly striving to increase our medical knowledge throught raining and education. Surgeons a The Methodist Hospital are leaders in technology and technique — so you'll be in very good hands.
Before you decide to have a surgical procedure, use all of the available resources to help you make an informed decision. It's important to ask questions and gather as much information as you can — a process that may include getting a second opinion from another doctor, particularly if the decision-making process remains difficult.
Mark the Spot
It's always a good idea to confirm the facts before the procedure begins. Talk with your doctor and surgeon beforehand and review the details with them, like your name, the type of surgery you're having and the part of your body that requires surgery. Many surgeons will actually mark the site with a special pen — ask your surgeon for more information about this.
When you're getting ready to go to the hospital, think clean. Shower, wash your hair, and remove nail polish and makeup. You should leave jewelry and other accessories at home as well — this makes it easier for your team to check your circulation during the operation, and can help lower the risk of infection.
As with any stage of your treatment, you should be fully aware of what's going on. Don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have.
