Global Surgery Center

Patient care at its best

Before Your Surgery

Please follow these guidelines the day before your surgery to ensure that your
procedure goes smoothly:

  • Notify your surgeon before coming to the center if there is any change in your
    physical condition, or you develop a cough, sore throat, fever, or medication change.
     

  • You will be contacted twice by a member of the Surgery Center or Oradell's nursing
    staff. The first call will be to obtain a brief medical history and to give you instructions,
    the second call will be to give you your arrival time. If you will be unavailable for the
    1st call please call the Global Surgery Center and arrange to speak with a
    nurse
    (If we have not contacted you the day prior to your surgery, please call
    201-367-2273).Please check your phone messages for an arrival time.
     

  • Please request that all lab results and medical clearance from your physician's
    office be forwarded to us at least 72 hours prior to your procedure. Our fax
    # is 201-262-2273. Bring all your insurance cards and your photo id. If doctor
    has requested, bring any x-rays, reports or MRI with you to us.
     

  • The night before your surgery you may eat a light snack before 10:00 p.m. Do not
    drink or eat anything after midnight not even coffee or water. This will reduce the
    possibility of nausea and vomiting following anesthesia. You may brush your
    teeth, remembering not to swallow anything. Refrain from the use of mints,
    chewing gum or cigarettes. Failure to follow these instructions may result
    in cancellation of your surgery.
     

  • Please do not take any medication after midnight unless instructed by your physician
    or the Global Surgery Center. If you are diabetic or on blood pressure or heart
    medication, obtain specific instructions from your physician or contact us.
     

  • If you take herbal supplements and / or vitamins, stop usage 1 week before surgery.
