The surgical experience at Monroe County Hospital includes a pre-operative appointment. During the pre-operative appointment, you will be given information regarding the day before surgery, the day of surgery, and what to expect after surgery. Our goal is to inform you on every step of the process and answer any question you may have so you can have a satisfying experience during your surgical stay.
