Our surgical services

Your surgery: before and after

  • Please consult your primary care provider and surgical provider regarding instructions for continuing or temporarily stopping any of your current medications. We will call you to set up an appointment with the pre-surgical clinic to review your medications prior to your surgical procedure.
  • Please leave all valuables, including jewelry, at home.
  • Wear comfortable and appropriate clothing for your type of surgery.
  • Do not wear jewelry, body piercings, makeup or perfume.
  • Please shower or bathe, preferably with antibacterial soap (ex. Dial) prior to your surgical procedure to decrease the risk of infection.
  • Please make arrangements for a responsible adult over the age of 18 to drive you to and from UCHealth Eastview Surgery Center on the day of your surgery, and to remain with you at your home overnight if you will be receiving any sedation or anesthesia for your surgery or procedure.

If you have questions, or feel you cannot comply with these guidelines, please call UCHealth Eastview Surgery Center at the number above.

A member of the UCHealth Pre-Anesthesia Clinic will call you before your scheduled surgery. During the call we will review your health history, medications, past surgeries, allergies and other information about your current health status, as well as how best to prepare for your visit. Notify your surgeon and UCHealth Eastview Surgery Center of any change in your physical condition, such as a cold, fever, sore throat, rash or flu.

Day of surgery

  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes.
  • Leave jewelry and valuables at home, including watches and money.
  • Please bring your identification, insurance card, and any applicable co-pays.
  • A responsible adult over the age of 18 must drive you to and from your procedure and remain with you for 24 hours if you will be receiving any sedation or anesthesia for your surgery or procedure.
When you arrive

After you check in at the registration desk, your pre-operative registered nurse will take you to the pre-operative area. Here they will review your health history, medications, previous surgeries, check your blood pressure, heart rate and temperature, start an IV and answer your questions about your procedure and after-care.

Your surgical team, including your surgeon and operating room staff, will visit with you to sign your surgical consent, mark the site of surgery, and to make sure you are well prepared for your procedure.

Your anesthesia provider will see you in the pre-op area, review your health history, sign your anesthesia consent, answer your questions.

A friend or family member may stay with you until you go into the operating room area.

Immediately prior to your surgery

You are the most important person in the operating room. Your comfort and safety are our top priority.

The operating room nurse will assist you onto the table, make you comfortable, and apply monitors. The nurse will stay with you throughout your procedure.

After your surgery

When your surgery is completed you will be taken to the recovery unit, also known as the PACU, where a nurse will apply monitors, check dressings, check the IV site, monitor vital signs and administer pain medication as needed.

You will experience some discomfort after surgery. The amount and type of discomfort varies, based on your perception of pain and your procedure. We will customize your pain management to meet your needs.

Your family member will be able to be with you as soon as your vital signs are stable and you are awake. As soon as you feel like drinking and/or eating, the nurse will offer you something to drink and/or eat (crackers, popsicles and juice).

When you are ready to go home, the nurse will go over your individualized discharge instructions. It is important that you and your family member understand the directions for your care after your surgery. You will not be able to drive or return to work on the day of your surgery if you had any sedation or anesthesia.
