Hello, I’m Dr. Michael Morris

The facility will contact you in the afternoon, typically the business day before the operation, to instruct you on what time to arrive. Typically, you arrive 2 hours before your scheduled operating room time, although that time is a little bit flexible. 

It usually takes about 2 hours to go through the registration process to get checked in, to get into the appropriate clothing for the facility, to get your IV started, to have your nursing care provided, and to meet the anesthesia team. 

So, a lot goes into getting you ready for the operation on the morning of the operation, and then ultimately, about 2 hours after your arrival, is what time you’ll have your operation.

If you would like to know more about how your surgery will take place, contact us at JIS Orthopedics. Our specialists in New Albany and St. Clairsville, Ohio, can give you the answers you are looking for. Schedule a visit with us today!
