Pre-surgery education class

  • The hospital at which you are having your surgery may offer a pre-surgery education class. Members of your health care team will be there to answer questions and help guide you through your surgery experience.

    It is strongly recommended that you bring a member of your care circle to this class. This person should also be available to act as a "coach" during your hospital stay and recovery.

    At the pre-surgery education class, you will learn:

    • how to get ready for surgery
    • what to expect during your hospital stay
    • how to go home safely after surgery
  • Scheduling your class
