On arrival the day of surgery you will register, be checked in by a preoperative nurse and meet your operative team which will likely include an OR nurse, a nurse anesthetist, an anesthesiologist and a representative of the surgical team (either your surgeon or a physician assistant.) Any additional tests that are needed prior to the surgery will be performed and any additional medication will be administered. You will receive an I.V. (intravenous) catheter before surgery. We will ensure that either a very skilled nurse or an anesthesia provider will try to make the I.V. insertion as pleasant as possible.
