Before you get here:
After your doctor has scheduled a time and date for your procedure, a member of our staff will contact you. During this pre-admission interview, you will be given a list of instructions to follow to ensure a safe procedure and recovery. You will also need to answer questions regarding your medical history. We encourage you to ask any questions you may have about your surgery. It is our goal to make your surgical experience as pleasant as possible.
You are, of course, welcome to visit the facility in advance of your surgery KSF Orthopaedic Surgery Center has the most up-to-date equipment and has been designed especially to care for the surgical patient. This enables you to receive the maximum levels of care and service from the moment you walk into the center’s admitting room until the time you leave for home following surgery.
When you arrive:
KSF Orthopaedic Surgery Center welcomes you as a patient and assures you the care you receive is of the highest quality. To make your surgical experience safe and successful, you will need to follow these guidelines:
- Please follow all instructions given.
- On the day of your surgery, please arrive one hour prior to your scheduled surgery time.
- Upon arrival, please sign in. One of our staff will accompany you to the pre-op area.
- Wear casual, comfortable clothing.
- Leave all jewelry, body piercings and valuables at home.
- Do not wear nail polish or makeup.
- Do not come alone. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home after your surgery.

The anesthesiology staff of Red Oak Anesthesia are specifically trained to provide safe general anesthesia as well as a variety of “blocks” for those patients who do not want a general anesthesia. These “blocks” can be performed with long acting medications which give the patients a significant amount of pain relief in the hours following the procedure.
The front office staff is extremely helpful and will also watch friends and loved ones as they await the completion of the procedure and recovery. If there are any questions, please contact our Nursing Supervisor at 281-866-2706.
