Preparing for Your Procedure

Before Your Procedure

Your referring doctor's office will schedule your appointment with us and provide you with all information related to preparation and expectations for your specific condition and procedure.

You will need to arrange for a family member or friend to take you home after your procedure. Please note that you will not be allowed to drive yourself or to take a bus. You must have someone escort you by car or taxi.

When You Arrive For Your Procedure

Please wear comfortable clothes and leave all valuables at home. When you come to the main hospital you may go directly to the Ambulatory Care Unit on the first floor of the Hanchett Building. This is where you will check in and prepare for your procedure. They will take you to the Interventional Radiology suite. If your procedure is a day procedure, not requiring an overnight stay, you will be brought back to this area when your procedure is complete. Your companion is encouraged to accompany you to check-in and may wait in the waiting area during your procedure.

After Your Procedure

Your recovery will depend on the type of procedure you have. Your doctor will be able to tell you what to expect after the procedure for your path to recovery. If your procedure does not require an overnight stay, you will likely return to the Ambulatory Care Unit. If you will be admitted to a patient care unit, your belongings will be transferred to your room for you and your companion will be notified.
