Prince Frederick Surgery Center
Prince Frederick Surgery Center is staffed by caring professionals to serve patients’ surgical needs, and provide orthopedic and pain management procedures.
 

Before your surgery:

 Remember, DO NOT EAT, DRINK, OR CHEW anything after midnight the night before your surgery, unless otherwise instructed. This includes gum, mints, candy, and chewing tobacco.

The morning of surgery:

  • Do not eat or drink anything the morning of surgery, unless your doctor has given you other instructions.
  • Take your heart and/or blood pressure medications with a sip of water. Diabetic patients, ask your physician how to adjust your dose of insulin on the day of your procedure.
  • You may brush your teeth and rinse your mouth with water, but do not swallow any of the water.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing (a short-sleeved, button-front shirt is best).
  • Leave all valuables and jewelry at home.
  • If you wear glasses or contacts, bring a case to store them in.
  • Please do not wear makeup, perfume, or dark colored nail polish.
  • You should have a responsible driver with you on the day of the procedure. Your driver should remain in the facility while you are in surgery.
