American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Operation Brochures for Patients

This educational information is presented to help you become better informed about your operation and empower you with the skills and knowledge needed to actively participate in your care.

We also offer additional patient education materials to help you quit smoking and keep track of your prescription medications so that you can share your medication record with your surgeons. And we offer skills training kits for ostomy, central lines, and feeding tube care at home, and home care for lung patients.
