Immediately after surgery, patients are shown to the PACU (Post Anesthesia Care Unit) to recover for up to one hour. They are then taken to our Stage 2 recovery area on the 1st floor of the ACC.
During this recovery time, patients are cared for by our dedicated team of clinicians and nurses who will ensure that it is progressing well.
Once the doctor and anesthesiologist believe the patient is well enough, they are then discharged from Stage 2 recovery. Any medication that is required to return home with is provided and any additional tests or follow-up appointments are scheduled.
