Recovering From Surgery

Recovering From Surgery

While your plan after surgery will be to get lots of rest, there are additional guidelines to follow as you mend your body after your procedure.

During your stay at the Genesis Surgery, you’ll be given instructions about your recovery and discharge expectations. A nurse will review these instructions with you and your family before you leave the facility.

24 Hours After Surgery

You’ll likely feel drowsy for several hours after your surgery, so it’s advised to have an adult home with you for the first 24 hours to help you during your recuperation.

Ask Questions & Voice Concerns

If you or your family have any questions about your surgery and at-home care and treatment, do one or more of the following:

  • For any emergency, immediately call 9-1-1.
  • Contact your doctor at the office number listed on the discharge instructions.
  • To share additional questions or concerns, call the Surgery at 740-453-0661.
  • Call the Genesis NurseLine: 800-989-4949.

Post-Surgery Billing

After your surgery, you’ll receive a billing statement from the Genesis Surgery notifying you that we’ve submitted your bill to your insurance company for the facility fee. You’ll receive a separate bill from your physicians. If you received other services, such as anesthesia, X-ray or lab tests, you’ll be billed separately.

Make an Appointment

We recommend a referral from your primary care physician for a consult with a Genesis Center of Surgical Excellence surgeon. To schedule the surgery consult, or if you have questions about a possible surgery, call 740-453-0661.
