Preparing for Surgery

Prior to surgery, a nurse from Lincoln Surgery Center will call you at home. The purpose of this call is to obtain a brief medical history and baseline information about your health and medication usage so that we can take better care of you or your child. This call also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

If you or your child have orders from your physician to obtain blood tests, EKG, or other tests or exams prior to your procedure, please arrange to have them completed prior to your appointment. The purpose of pre-admission testing is to gather information before surgery about your health status. Please bring the results of the testing with you or have the results faxed to Lincoln Surgery Center at (720) 542-6701.

Please make arrangements for transportation home from the surgery center and for a responsible adult to be with you for 24 hours after surgery.

For Pediatric Patients it is suggested that a comfort item such as a favorite toy, stuffed animal or blanket be brought with the child on the day of surgery.

Please leave all money, credit cards, jewelry and valuables at home.

Notify your physician immediately if there is any change in your physical condition (i.e. fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or respiratory infection).
