Before Your Procedure


Your preoperative visit at the Peachtree Orthopaedic Surgery Center at Piedmont is a very important part of your surgical experience and our first step toward assuring your comfort and safety. This appointment will be scheduled at your convenience, but we ask that your appointment is complete at least three business days prior to your surgery. Your physician's office may instruct you to telephone the surgery center at 404-351-6393, to schedule your appointment.

At the time of your appointment, a nurse will review your medical history, your pre- and post-operative care, and transportation needs. Your surgery and arrival times, if given, are tenative. The appointment will take approximately 30 minutes to an hour with the RN. If it is necessary to send you for lab work, additional time will be required. If you have had any lab tests performed within the past year, please be able to provide us with the office name and phone number where the results may be obtained, so that we might avoid duplicating lab tests unnecessarily.


Preparing for Surgery

Your surgeon will be performing the procedure at Peachtree Orthopaedic Surgery Center at Piedmont assisted by our registered nurses and skilled technicians. If your surgery requires anesthesia, we will provide the anesthesiologist to complete your medical team. To ensue a safe procedure, please follow these guidelines:

  • Do not eat or drink anything (including water, candy and gum) after midnight of the day preceding your surgery. Undigested food in the stomach can cause complications, and your surgery is likely to be postponed if you do not following this instruction.
  • Notify Peachtree Orthopaedic Surgery Center at Piedmont if you have any health change such as a cold or elevated temperature.
  • Bathe or shower in the morning of your surgery to minimize the risk of infection.
  • You may brush your teeth and use mouthwash the morning of your surgery but do not swallow any water.
  • Wear casual, loose fitting clothing so you will be comfortable when you leave our facility.
  • Please leave jewelry and other valuable items at home for safe keeping. All body jewelry will be required to be removed prior to your procedure.
  • You may be asked to remove contact lenses, dentures, and other prostheses when you dress for surgery.
  • Parents of minors should plan to remain at our facility for the duration of the child's stay.
  • Bring your insurance card, photo id, facility payment, and any medication you are taking to Peachtree Orthopaedic Surgery Center at Piedmont the day of your surgery.
