Welcome to Encore Surgery Center Inc.

Encore Surgery Center is a multi-specialty surgical facility with Encore's leading board certified surgeons and anesthesiologists at the core of your team. The following procedures for before, during, and post-surgery are very important for a safe, smooth operation, and recovery.

Day of Your Surgery

  • Tell your team if there are any changes to your physical condition (i.e. the flu).
  • You'll get a call from Encore Surgery Center prior to your surgery to go over instructions. Only a message to return the call will be left on voicemail to protect patient privacy. Please call us back, this information is important.
  • Do not wear contact lenses during your surgery. Encore Surgery Center provides safe containers when needed for glasses, removable bridges, or dentures.
  • Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before (or early morning) of your surgery. This includes water. You can brush your teeth in the morning, but do not chew mints or gum. Eating or drinking after midnight can result in a delay or rescheduling of your surgery.
  • Do not take any medications after midnight unless your medical team at Encore Surgery Center has approved it. Patients who regularly take any medication or natural supplements should tell Encore Surgery Center before surgery.

Morning of Your Surgery

  • Make sure you have a responsible adult driving you to and from your procedure, if required by our Encore Surgery Center team. Your driver will need to stay with you 24 hours post-surgery. Patients who require a ride, but arrive without one, may have their procedure rescheduled. These details will be reviewed with you during our pre-surgery phone call.
  • The person driving you must stay at Encore Surgery Center during your procedure.
  • Please bathe or shower before surgery. Do not apply any makeup or use lotions or perfumes.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that's loose and easy to get into. Oversized clothing is best if you'll have a cast or a sling. Wear comfortable slip-on shoes with a good grip.
  • Leave any valuables at home. Encore Surgery Center is not responsible for lost or stolen personal items.
  • Have a list of current medications, including natural supplements and any over the counter medications, with you.
  • Be ready to sign consent prior to the procedure. Patients under 18 years old must have a parent/legal guardian available to sign the consent.
  • Have your insurance information and a photo ID ready.

After Your Surgery

  • Before leaving, you'll get written instructions for at home care.
  • When you get home, follow all written instructions including activity, diet, medications, and rest.
  • Know that it's normal to feel dizzy, sleepy, or lightheaded even several hours' post-surgery.
  • Know that a member of Encore Surgery Center will follow up with you 1 to 3 days' post-surgery to check in regarding questions or concerns.
  • Avoid driving, drinking alcohol, smoking, and operating heavy machinery for 24 hours' post-surgery.
  • Contact Encore Surgery Center with any questions or concerns.

Post Surgery

Post-surgery, you'll be transported to the recovery room. In the recovery room, your surgical team will monitor your condition. Most patients stay in the recovery room 1 hour before being discharged; however, the length of time can vary based on each person and procedure.

When a patient is discharged, an Encore Surgery Center team member will give the patient and/or their designated family member/loved one written information for after care. The team member will also ensure the patient gets safely into their transport's car.
