Surgery Center of the Lakelands staff is fully trained and experienced to provide you with quality care during your staff with us. At least 4 to 7 days prior to your procedure, please complete the online Patient Registration Form.
We schedule our patients to arrive at Surgery Center of the Lakelands one hour prior to their procedure time to enable our staff to complete your preparation for your surgery. (The arrival time given the day before surgery has already included this one hour.)
Take time a few days before your scheduled procedure to make special arrangements for:
- A family member or friend to accompany you to the center. You must have a responsible adult remain at the facility during your procedure.
- If the patient is a child, both parents are welcome to accompany the child to the Surgery Center. (We only allow one parent at a time in recovery but parents may switch as much as they would like.) Please have childcare for other children, as you will need to focus attention on child that is having surgery.
- Please review the Pre-Operative Instruction Sheet and Checklist before your procedure to aide in preparing for a successful surgical experience.
On the Day of Your Procedure
Please check in at the front desk upon arrival. Patients will then be admitted to the Pre-Operative area where you will be cared for by a Registered Nurse. The anesthesiologist and surgeon will meet with you before surgery to discuss any questions or concerns.
