Surgery Guide

Preparing for your Surgery

A nurse from Mallard Creek Surgery Center will call you prior to your scheduled surgery. We will review with you, a list of current medications, including their dosage and time taken. We will also discuss your allergies and go over your medical history. The nurse will then review all of your medications that you will need to take prior to surgery. Finally we will tell you what time you should arrive at the surgery center on the day of your procedure and what items to bring with you. If for some reason we have not spoken with you a few days prior to your scheduled surgery, please call (704) 548-5200. If it is after hours, we ask that you leave a message with the following information:

  • Your name,
  • Your date of birth,
  • The best phone number to reach you
  • The best time for us to call you back.
