Pay My Bill

Thank you for choosing 212 Surgery Center! We are happy to provide you with an exceptional surgical experience! This website will help guide you through what to expect during your visit to 212 Surgery Center.

Before your Surgery

  • You must arrange for a responsible adult (18 years or older) to drive you home.
  • You must arrange to have a responsible adult (18 years or older) to stay with you for 24 hours following surgery.
  • A pre-operative history and physical must be performed by your primary care physician within 30 days of your surgery. Please complete this at least 1 week prior to your surgery.

Pre-Op Phone Call

You will receive a phone call with all of your pre-operative instructions. This call will include:

  • The time you need to arrive at the surgery center.
  • When to stop eating and drinking.
  • A reminder to remove all jewelry and leave all valuables at home.

This is not an all-inclusive list so please be available for our call 2 business days prior to your procedure or 1 business day if your surgeon is Dr. Marek. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, we are here for you!

Please complete the Pre-Admission Screening (PAS) at least 3 days prior to your surgery to allow time for a nurse to review. This will be sent to you via text message or email.

Arrive for Surgery

Check in at the front office with your family member at the time given to you during your pre-op phone call.

Bring your insurance card and ID, as well as your Covid-19 vaccination card or copy of Covd-19 test (if instructed to obtain one prior to surgery).

Please bring a list of any medications including names and dosages.

Wear comfortable loose-fitting clothing to allow for dressings and/or splints (no jeans, please).

Pre-Op

When your check-in is complete, a pre-op nurse will bring you to a pre-op room where they will:

  • Confirm your name, birthdate and your procedure with you.
  • Ask you to mark your surgical site.
  • Verify you have not had anything to eat or drink.
  • Review your medications and allergies.
  • Verify you have a safe ride home and someone to take care of you for 24 hours while you recover.
  • Give you a gown and a warm blanket.
  • Start an IV (if you are receiving anesthesia).
  • Review your health history.
  • Remove any dentures, hearing aids or jewelry.
  • Perform surgical site hair clipping if necessary (please do not shave your surgical site at home).
  • Complete a pre-surgical scrub at your surgical site.
  • Review aftercare and discharge instructions.

In pre-op, you will meet your surgeon and anesthesiologist who will perform a series of tasks for your safety.

Your Surgeon will:

  • Answer all of your questions. This will be the only time you see your surgeon during your stay so be sure to ask all of your questions!
  • Discuss risks, benefits, options and aftercare instructions.
  • Mark your surgical site.
  • Provide a written prescription for pain medication, if needed, to be filled at a pharmacy of your choice after your surgery.

Your Anesthesiologist will:

  • Confirm the procedure with you.
  • Discuss your options for anesthesia.
  • Perform a health and anesthesia history review.
  • Assess the need and perform a nerve block, if necessary. If indicated, they will review the risks and benefits.
  • Answer all of your questions.

Surgery

All safety checks have been completed and the operating suite is ready for you! Your OR nurse will introduce themselves and you will meet the nurse anesthetist who will provide your anesthesia for surgery.

Your family is welcome to wait in the waiting room, or leave the facility if you are over 18.

Once surgery is complete, the surgeon will discuss findings with your family member, if present. If your family member is not present, they will miss the opportunity to speak with the surgeon.

After Surgery

Recovery Room

After your surgery is complete, you will be moved to the recovery room where you will be monitored until you are ready to go home. Although times may vary, most patients are discharged 30 minutes to two hours after surgery.

Sometimes people are so focused on their surgery that they forget to ask questions about their recovery. Here are a few details about what you can expect:

  • Monitors are applied by recovery room nurse.
  • Oxygen may be applied by facemask or nasal cannula.
  • Vital signs are monitored closely.
  • You will be assessed for nausea, pain, circulation, or bleeding.
  • When you are awake, you may be offered ice chips, water, soda, or juice and a small snack.
  • Braces, boots, or a sling may be applied.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • It is normal to feel discomfort in the area of your surgery.
  • You may also experience some drowsiness or dizziness, depending on the type of anesthesia and/or medications you received.
  • We make copies of the discharge instructions which were reviewed with you pre-operatively and send you home with the original.

Leaving the Center and After Your Procedure

Prepare to stop at a pharmacy on your drive home to fill your prescription if one was written for you.

A nurse from 212 Surgery Center will call you within a day or 2 to check-in on your recovery and progress.

In the event of a medical emergency, please call 911.
