Help After Surgery


Advances in medical treatment now allow for many surgical and diagnostic procedures to be done on an outpatient basis.

Rather than staying overnight in the hospital, you can now go home and recover in the comfort of familiar surroundings.

To keep you safe, you cannot drive yourself home or be home alone through the evening and morning following your surgery.

If you are unable to have a friend or family member drive you home and stay with you, you can either:

  • Reschedule your surgery until someone is available to help in your recovery.
  • Take advantage of the post procedure patient care services available in this area.
