What about driving home after outpatient surgery?

Even though short acting anesthetics are used, you must refrain from operating any heavy mechanical machinery including driving any motor vehicle for a minimum of 24 hours after your procedure. Thus, you will need to have a responsible adult present at discharge to escort you home.  For further information regarding outpatient surgery, please refer to the link/brochure below.
