Frequently Asked Questions:

Q.  What do I need to do to prepare for my surgery the day before?

A.  Don’t eat or drink after midnight before your surgery.  Ask your surgeon about taking any medication the day of surgery. Remove ALL makeup, jewelry, and fingernail polish before arriving. Please leave valuables at home; you may need to bring cash or a credit card if you’ve been informed you owe a co-pay.

Q.  What day and time will my surgery be?

A.  Your surgeon or their office will provide you the scheduled date and time of your surgery.

Q.  Should I allow and plan for extra time getting to the Jonsson Admitting office?

A.  Yes, traffic, weather and construction in Dallas along with other conditions may make you late for your appointment. Also, please plan to spend extra time at the clinic because other patients will most likely experience the same conditions which can cause congestion and delays.

Q. Do I need to fast (nothing to eat or drink) prior to my pre-admission  appointment?

A. No.
