Having Surgery at Wilson
At Wilson, a person is typically scheduled for surgery by their physician. They may be asked to come to the hospital a few days before their surgery to pre-register and to receive pre-operative instructions and testing from a nurse. The nurse may conduct a phone interview to obtain a short medical history and explain the surgical routine to the patient. Because our patients are often our neighbors and friends, sometimes even our relatives, we understand what surgery can mean to you and how important our role is in achieving a successful outcome. The extra time and care we invest in planning and performing each surgery helps increase the likelihood of a successful outcome and recovery.
