The time will arrive when all necessary preparations and procedures are complete. It is time to go to the operating room. In many centers, the nurses from the operating room will arrive to take you away for surgery. They will review your chart, ask you who you are, what surgery you expect to have and the name of your surgeon. Once they are satisfied all is correct you will be taken to the operating room. In many centers, the transport of the patient is now completed by anesthesia and the operating room nurses will ask their questions when you arrive in the operating room. Some centers believe this latter scenario facilitates the transfer of patients and makes the process more efficient.
