Prepare for Surgery and other Procedures

Undergoing surgery and other medical procedures can be challenging, but there’s a lot you can do to make sure your surgery/procedure and recovery goes well. Research suggests that people who prepare mentally and physically for surgery or other procedures have fewer complications, less pain, and recover more quickly than those who do not prepare.

Our Prepare for Surgery/Procedures Program will help you by:

  • Leading you in a guided imagery rehearsal of your surgery or procedure
  • Develop a plan for coping with pre-surgery anxiety and concerns, day of surgery worries, and post-operative pain and discomfort.
  • Enhancing recovery from surgery
