Pre-surgery Spine Education

If you are scheduled for spine surgery at one of our Dignity Health campuses, we are committed to making your experience comfortable and informative. To help you and your loved ones caring for you after surgery prepare, please review our Pre-Spine Surgery Education information below and check your email or text messages to an educational video to further assist you in preparing for a successful recovery.

This video goes over general information about having a surgical procedure, including what to expect before, during, and after the procedure, general risks of surgery, and medicine safety.

The title of the video is "Pre-Surgical/Procedure" and you will find it at the bottom of the video page (click on button below).
