The Day Before Surgery

Essential Steps for Surgery Preparation

The day prior to a patient’s surgery, he or she will receive a phone call from University Hospitals MacDonald Women's Hospital confirming the scheduled surgery time. If patients have not received this call by 3 p.m. the day prior to the procedure, they should call
1-866-UH4-CARE to find out the correct arrival time.

Patients are advised to arrive at UH MacDonald Women's Hospital two hours prior to the scheduled procedure.

No Food or Drink

Patients should not drink or eat any food after midnight the evening prior to the scheduled surgery.
