During Your Surgery

We ask that your family waits in the designated waiting room. We will give an estimated range of
time that your surgery will take. We routinely speak to the family after the surgery. If your family
is unable to wait but would like a call after your surgery, let our office know when you arrive in the morning.

You will receive a dose of antibiotics prior to skin incision as this is proven to reduce the
incidence of surgical infections. If you are allergic to antibiotics, Betadine, or Latex, please let our office know before your surgery since these items are used often for neurosurgery.
Depending on the type of surgery you are having, appropriate monitoring of your central nervous system will be performed. Spinal cases are monitored with somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) and motor evoked potentials (MEPs). Brain cases are monitored in order to protect the brainstem,
visual apparatus, and/or cranial nerves.

During the surgery, you will have protection against deep vein thrombosis by sequential compression devices around your legs. If the surgery is expected to last more than two hours, a Foley catheter will
be used to collect and measure urine output. You may receive antibiotics during the first day after surgery depending on the types of drains and catheters which we placed at your surgery. At wound closure, we will decide if staples or sutures are appropriate depending on the length of the
wound and the conditions at surgery. We will do everything we can to make the incision as
short and cosmetic as possible.
