What to Expect: Prior to Surgery

The days leading up to your scheduled surgery can be stressful and confusing, and you may have many questions. Being aware of what should happen before the day of your surgery could help put your mind at ease and help ensure a safer, more successful procedure.

Prior to your day of surgery, you will receive three phone calls.

  • Registration will call to obtain insurance verification.
  • A nurse will call to ask you questions regarding your health history. If you do not receive this call from the nurse three days before your surgery, please call (248) 265-4612 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
  • You will receive a courtesy call the day before your procedure to remind you of your time of arrival. (Your surgical time may be altered due to needed changes in the schedule.) If you do not receive this call by 4 p.m., please call (248) 265-4612.

If the doctor requires you to have lab tests, an EKG, or X-rays prior to surgery, we encourage you to have the tests completed within one week of your surgery date.

Do not take aspirin products or blood thinners (Coumadin, Plavix, etc.). These should be stopped 5 – 7 days prior to surgery according to your physician. Consult with your physician regarding medication usage.

The UnaSource Surgery Center reception desk is available for service from 5:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday Monday through Friday. UnaSource Surgery Center is closed on weekends and holidays.
