Preoperative Education Class

We are committed to providing you all of the information you need to make you feel at ease before your procedure. That is why we offer the Preoperative Education Class to increase your comfort level regarding your upcoming surgery. The class will prepare you and your family or support person for your surgical experience and recovery process. Classes are held every Wednesday morning at 9am. For more information, or to register for the class, please call (941) 342-3381.

If you are unable to attend the live class, we would still like you to benefit from the education provided. That is why we offer two additional options to help prepare you for your surgery. *Your surgeon should have a DVD copy of the Preoperative class available for you. If you did not receive a DVD and you would like a copy, please call us at (941) 342-3381 and we can provide you with a DVD.

*The Preoperative class is also available online, please take time to view this presentation. At the end of the presentation you will receive a code, please write it down as you will be asked for it at your pre-operative visit.
