Guide to Outpatient Surgery
Prior to Your Surgery
After your surgeon has scheduled your procedure at Stony Point Surgery Center, representatives from the Center will contact you. The representatives will review any pre-op testing, your medical history, medications you are taking, and discuss any concerns or answer any questions you may have about your financial responsibilities to the Center.
Deductibles and co-payments are due prior to surgery. For your convenience we accept VISA, MasterCard, and Discover, as well as personal check and cash.
If your child is scheduled for a surgical procedure, you and your child are invited to tour the facility. If you have any questions, concerns or would like to schedule a tour, please call us at (804) 775-4500.

After your procedure, you must be accompanied and driven home by an adult. No patient will be permitted to leave the Center alone.
The number of visitors for any one patient may be limited in the recovery area due to space constraints.

It is normal to feel weak and drowsy. Please plan to have someone with you for at least 24 hours after your procedure.
