Preparing for Outpatient Surgery
The Madison Surgery Center staff is fully trained and experienced to provide you with quality care during your stay with us. Before the day of your procedure, please complete the online Patient Medical History Form.
We schedule our patients to arrive at MSC one hour prior to their procedure time to enable our staff to complete your preparation for your surgery.
Take time a few days before your scheduled procedure to make special arrangements for:
- A babysitter. If you have children, ask someone to sit with your children.
- A family member or friend to accompany you to the center. You must have a responsible adult remain at the facility during your procedure.
- If the patient is a child, both parents are welcome to accompany the child to the Surgery Center.
- Please review the Pre-Operative Instruction Sheet and Checklist Before Leaving Home prior to your arrival to aide you in preparing for your procedure.
On the Day of Your Procedure:
Patients are admitted to the Pre-Operative area where you will be cared for by a Registered Nurse. The anesthesiologist will meet with you before surgery to discuss the anesthetic plan.
Please limit the number of family/friends you bring with you to the Center. We allow one visitor 14 years of age or older to wait with the patient prior to your procedure. One visitor over the age of 14 years old will be allowed in the Post-Operative area after the Procedure. If the patient is a child both parents will be allowed in the Pre-Op and Post-Operative areas.
