You’re in Good Hands
Surgery can be a nerve-racking experience for anyone. At Marcus Daly Memorial
Hospital, our knowledgeable staff will guide you through every step of
the process so you can feel confident about the road ahead. We pride ourselves
on answering patient questions and explaining details in a clear, easy-to-understand
manner. These procedures are not as complicated as they may seem, and

You will likely require some time to recover after your surgery. Our team
will be sure to go over what to expect after the procedure well in advance
so you can make the necessary preparations. It is advised that you have
someone stay with you overnight for at least 24 hours following your surgery,
and you will need someone to drive you home from the hospital.
