Thank you for choosing CoxHealth

At CoxHealth, our mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve through quality health care, education and research.

We want you to partner with us, so we can provide you with the best possible care. This guide was developed to provide you with the information you need about preparing for surgery, what to expect while you're at CoxHealth, and how to continue your path to wellness once you are home. 

Please note that this is a general guide. Your physician's instructions are tailored to you. If your physician gives you instructions that conflict with the information here, it is better to listen to your physician.
