Following your procedure, you will receive both verbal and written post-surgical care instructions that you will be expected to follow. Prior to your discharge, your driver must read and sign these instructions. If you do not have an escort to drive you home, you will not be permitted to leave the facility until someone comes to get you. No taxis, Ubers, Lyfts, or public transportation will be accepted as a method of transportation. Please also have a friend, relative, or caregiver available to stay with you for 24 hours to ensure you are comfortable and have everything you need.
It is common to feel tired or dizzy for up to 24 hours following surgery. However, if you are experiencing anything that seems abnormal, please contact Fellowship Surgical Center or go to the nearest emergency room. If you have any questions or concerns after Fellowship Surgical Center is closed, please call Coastal Spine at 856-222-4444, and someone will be able to assist you.
