Preparing for your surgery
We understand that finding out you need spinal surgery is overwhelming and preparing for your surgery can be stressful. Your team at SpineCare of NY will do everything we can to ensure that you are fully prepared to undergo surgery, including pre-operative (pre-op) patient education. We encourage you to attend a pre-op education class, which is taught by registered nurses in collaboration with physical therapists and social work case managers who will provide an overview of what to expect when having surgery. The class is held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 9:00 a.m. Please let your surgical coordinator know if you would like to sign up. All questions and concerns about your upcoming procedure will be answered prior to your surgery day. We’ve got your back!
