Before and After Surgery

The staff at St. Mary Mercy Hospital want to make your stay here as pleasant and comfortable as possible. We understand that most people have questions and some concerns about having an operation. Feeling nervous or scared is normal. Information about what to expect during your hospital stay can help reduce these worries and fears.

This information can help answer some of your questions and prepare you for your operation and recovery.

Keep in mind that every doctor has their own routine and each patient is unique. Therefore, this information may not answer all of your questions. Feel free to discuss additional questions with your doctor or nurse.

Our goal is for you to have a remarkable patient experience at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System.


This video, just under 15 minutes in length, will provide useful information for your preparation for surgery at St. Mary Mercy Hospital, in addition to the information we have available on our web site. We encourage you to watch it to help you understand what to expect prior to surgery, the day of surgery and after surgery.
