After the surgery, you will be in the recovery room for 30-45 minutes. While you are waking up, Dr. Lattermann will already have talked to your family in the waiting room. Dr. Lattermann likes to talk to his patients personally prior to discharge. Please understand that he may be in the operating room with another patient when you are ready to be discharged. Please be patient; he will come and talk to you.
Please contact us immediately after your surgery to arrange for the post-operative appointment.
Dr. Lattermann usually sees post-operative patients on Tuesdays in the week following the surgery. You should have an appointment card.
Check with your doctor to make sure these instructions apply to your case.
