Preparing for Surgery


At Texas Health Center for Diagnostics & Surgery, your care and comfort is of the utmost importance. Knowing what to expect prior to your procedure will help you have a better overall experience.

Before Surgery

Your physician's office will schedule your procedure.  You will register for your surgery on the day of your procedure.  Plan to arrive at the hospital 1 1/2 hours prior to your surgery unless otherwise specified. 

Please follow these instructions unless instructed otherwise by your physician:

 Preparing for Surgery

Pre-testing

You may be instructed by your physician to visit the pre-assessment testing department prior to your surgery. During your appointment, the staff will be happy to answer any questions regarding the process surrounding your procedure. To schedule an appointment, please call (972) 403-2700.

After Surgery

You will need to make arrangements for someone to drive you home after your procedure. For your safety, you will not be allowed to leave the facility alone. Before you leave, a nurse will discuss your care while you recuperate at home.

Staying Overnight

The hospital features 18 all-private suites for patients who need to stay overnight or for a few days to recuperate. Patients enjoy comfortable surroundings, hotel-style room service meals as well as personalized care during their stay.

Tours

The more familiar you are of your surroundings, the more relaxed you will be on the day of your procedure. If you are scheduled to have surgery and would like a tour of the facility, contact our patient-family liaison at scheduletours@thcds.com or (972) 403-2820.

If you have questions, call the pre-operative nursing staff at (972) 403-2750.
