Preparing for Surgery

We want to make sure you are prepared for your surgery or procedure at Parkview Regional Medical Center. Please review the information below. If you have any questions before your surgery or procedure, please contact your physician’s office.

The day of your surgery

After your surgery

  • You will wake up in the recovery area.
  • Specially trained recovery room nurses will monitor you.
  • Depending on how your body reacts to the anesthetic, you may remain in the recovery area for an hour or longer.
