The day before your surgery date

What do I do if I feel sick the day before surgery?

  • Call your surgeon’s office. Depending on your illness status, your surgery may need to be postponed.

When is the admission check-in time confirmed?

  • One business day before your surgery, you must call the Pre-Evaluation Center at (310) 319-2219 (between the hours of 2 and 4 pm) to find out when to arrive at the hospital. If your surgery is on a Monday, call the preceding Friday.

Is the planned surgery start time always correct?

  • If your surgery is not the first scheduled operation of the day, your surgery start time may be earlier or later than planned. If this does occur, you will be informed.
