The Pre-Surgical Planning at Vail Health
Vail Health Surgical Services is here to guide the patient and family throughout their surgical experience.
Through the pre-surgical planning (PSP), pre-operative, and post-anesthesia care process, an emphasis is placed on educating patients and their families/caregivers on their particular surgical procedures and providing support during this stressful time.
The immediate time prior to and after surgery is termed the “perianesthesia” phase of care.  Our goal is to make this perianesthesia time as stress-free and safe as possible for the patient and family.
