Saint Joseph Mercy Oakland (SJMO) is known for our Remarkable Care. Whether yours is a routine procedure or you are scheduled for something more complex, SJMO want your experience to be as comfortable and successful as possible.
As part of our team you the patient will need to know about the surgical procedure and be prepared as much as possible. Our staff and doctors will answer your questions and provide you with as much information you would like related to your procedure.
Whether you will have an outpatient surgery or will be admitted to the hospital after your surgery, it is important for you to follow instructions of your physician and care providers. In the section "Before and After Surgery" there is a great deal of information provided to you that will assist you in preparation. It is also a good idea to get a copy of this booklet with your specific instructions to achieve our mutual goals and satisfaction. Although this information is intended to answer most of your questions it may not answer all of your questions. At any time before, during or after your surgery we are available to you to answer any questions that you may have.
