An informed patient is usually more relaxed and is likely to have a smoother and more rapid recovery. Sequoia Hospital has prepared a brochure called Your Passport to Sequoia Hospital: Your Guide for Surgery Preparation & Recovery [English version | Spanish version] to help you navigate the surgery preparation process. This brochure will help you prepare for your surgery and help you understand what is expected of you.
Please remember to call the Pre-Op Nurse as soon as your surgery is scheduled at (650) 367-5545 to discuss the registration and pre-surgery process. Please complete the Anesthesia Patient Questionnaire given to you by your doctor’s office and bring it to your appointment with the Pre-Op nurse.
