Ask about your medications
Ask Dr. Rogerson's PA at your pre-op discussion whether or not you should take your routine prescription medications the morning of your surgery.
If deemed necessary, we will begin instruction on your shoulder exercise program or refer you to a qualified physical therapist prior to the surgery. We will also give an overview of the rehabilitation process after surgery. This will better prepare you for postoperative care.
A loose-fitting button down shirt is recommended. Please bring the following three pieces of information with you to the hospital: 1) Insurance, 2) A list of all your medications and dosages, and 3) a list of all your drug allergies.
Evening Before Surgery
Do not eat or drink after midnight the night before surgery.
You may take your morning medications with a small sip of water only if you have been instructed to do so by Dr. Rogerson's PA. You will check in at patient registration in Stoughton Hospital.
Your vital signs, such as blood pressure and temperature, will be measured.
A clean hospital gown will be provided.
All jewelry, dentures, contact lenses, and nail polish must be removed.
An IV will be started to give you fluids and medication during and after the procedure.
Dr. Rogerson will meet you to sign his initials on the operative site and to answer any questions.
Your shoulder will be scrubbed and shaved in preparation for surgery.
An anesthetist will discuss the type of anesthesia that will be used during your surgery.
