What to Expect From Your Procedure


You’ll begin prepping for your procedure with a call from a friendly BEC registered nurse to review your health history. Here, you’ll provide us with a current list of your medications and use this time to ask any questions you may have on the treatment process, as we’ll be giving you detailed instructions on how to prepare and what to bring.

Depending on the time and type of procedure, you may be told the following:

  • Don’t eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your procedure
  • Have a driver with you the day of surgery
  • Bring your insurance cards and identification
  • Plan for someone to be home with you following any sedated procedure


You will see your registered nurse, anesthesis (CRNA), surgeon, and other support staff members before the start of your procedure to answer any remaining questions. This team will work to maximize your safety and comfort from the start of your treatment to its finish.


You and your driver will receive instructions for the remainder of the day and information on the recovery process. In most cases, you’ll come in for a follow-up appointment the next day so that we can check the initial recovery progress.
