What Cardiac Surgery Patients Can Expect
On the day of your cardiac surgery, you will report to the admitting office. A hospital representative will register you and collect the information needed. You will be escorted to the cardiac surgery unit. Your family members or friends will be asked to stay in the waiting area while you are being prepared for the procedure.
All patients will have a different experience depending on the nature of their surgery and the severity of their individual condition.
Your doctor will give you more information on your surgery and recovery. If you have additional questions, please ask your surgeon or someone on our cardiac surgery team.
