These are general instructions if you are planning to undergo ear, nose, throat, head, or neck surgery. More detailed instructions will be given to you at your preoperative work up, which must be accomplished within 30 days prior to your surgery.
Wear light and comfortable clothing, and leave your valuables at home. Please be advised that the specific time of your surgery is not determined until the day before. If for any reason you have a specific request regarding time of your surgery (e.g. travel time from a far distance), please mention this at the time you schedule your surgery.
You will be called the afternoon or evening before your surgery to advise you of what time you should arrive for your surgery.
