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.
