After Your Surgery

Once you are in stable condition, you will be discharged. It is normal to experience sleepiness and dizziness for 12 to 24 hours after surgery.

Post Care: You will receive verbal and written post-surgical care instructions (please follow these instructions). Your escort must be available to discuss and sign these instructions before you will be allowed to go home. If you experience anything unusual after your surgery, please call your surgeon or go to the nearest emergency room. A nurse from our center will call you the next day after your surgery to check on your recovery.

Transportation: DO NOT PLAN TO DRIVE yourself home or use public transportation after your procedure. A friend or relative or dedicated caregiver MUST stay with you for 24 hours.

I recently had surgery at The Doral Surgical Center. From the moment I arrived at the front desk everything I was greeted with a warm smile. The nurses were so kind and patient with me, they made me feel really calmed and comfortable. I was in the hands of Dr. Cabreja anesthesiologist and Dr. Badia Surgeon, they were absolutely wonderful to me and my family members who waited for me to come out of surgery. I woke up in the recovery room with a smile and could not have been so grateful to the surgical center and staff for taking such great care of me and making this experience so pleasant. This really was top of the line service. Thank you all!!”
