Patient Information

Important Information

You will receive a call from one of our qualified RNs. Please be ready to provide a detailed medical history and an accurate list of all your medications.

It is very important that you speak to a nurse prior to your surgery.

If you have not heard from a Specialty Surgical Center representative, please call us at 973-940-3166.

During the call the nurse will give you an approximate time of your surgery and what time to arrive at the center.

Remember that surgical times are approximate and are subject to change.

If you become ill or develop any new health problems, please call your surgeon immediately. Changes in your health may impact your surgeon's decision to perform surgery.

If you must cancel, please call your doctor's office. We do not accept cancellations from anyone other than your doctor.

You may be required to fast anywhere from 4 – 8 hours prior to surgery. Your pre-op nurse will give you instructions.
