We are pleased you and your physician have chosen Dallas Regional Medical Center. We know you may have questions, and encourage you to discuss your hospital stay with your physician before you arrive. Below are some frequently asked questions about preparing for surgery that will answer some of your questions.
If you should have surgery, we conduct a pre-operative verification process. We may mark the place needing surgery or we may ask you to mark the arm, leg, etc. that needs surgery . We take a “time-out” immediately before starting the procedure to verify the correct patient and the correct procedure to be performed.
