In the Operating Room

You are the most important person in the operating room. Your comfort and safety are our top priority. If you have questions or concerns, please speak with your nurse. When you arrive in the operating room, the lights may seem bright and the temperature cool. If you’d like an additional warm blanket, just ask us.

As part of our operating room routine, the surgery team will conduct a "time out" before beginning your surgery. This is our final confirmation that we are doing the correct procedure on the correct site, and that all the necessary instruments and equipment are ready for your surgery.
