What should I take to my foot surgery procedure?
When you need foot surgery, we ask that you wear loose-fitting clothing, such as comfortable sweat pants. For your safety during the surgery, we also ask that you remove all jewelry and body piercings prior to coming in for your surgery and leave them at home.
We ask that you bring your official driver’s license or I.D. card, your insurance card and information, and any legal guardian papers (if necessary). If your child is having surgery, particularly young ones, we also encourage you to bring comforting items like their favorite blanket, toy or pacifier and sippy cup or bottle.
Since you are likely “only” having day surgery, you really don’t need to bring very much with you. Most people wear the same clothes home that they wore to the hospital. It’s a good idea to bring or wear casual and loose fitting clothing so that you are comfortable on the ride home. Also, it’s helpful when you put your clothes back on over the surgical site.
For additional information on what you should bring for your foot surgery procedure, don’t hesitate to contact our Belvidere or Hackettstown, NJ office by calling (908) 475-8750. You can also take advantage of our online form to connect with us as well.
