Preparing for Surgery

To prepare for your surgery or procedure at Huntington Health, we’ve created a booklet to help you and your loved ones get ready and know what to expect. We believe that people who know about their surgery or procedure are less anxious and have better experiences and recovery.

This booklet will let you know:
• How to get ready for your surgery.
• What to expect on the day of your surgery.
• What to expect while you are in the hospital.
• What to expect when you go home.
• How to continue recovering when you are home.
