Welcome to Red Rock Surgery Center, dedicated to providing excellence in outpatient surgical care in a customer-focused, service-oriented environment. The center is conveniently located in the heart of Summerlin.

We ask that you take a minute and read these pages that contain important information about your surgery. And please, remember…we are here to serve you, and want to make your surgical experience as comfortable as possible. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact our staff at 702/227-5848.

Pre-operative Testing

Many patients are required to have tests prior to surgery. You will receive instructions and orders for pre-operative testing from your surgeon. Tests may include:

  • Laboratory work (within four weeks of your scheduled surgery date)
  • EKG (within three months)
  • Chest X-ray (within six months)


Please have all test results faxed to Red Rock Surgery Center at  702-227-5849 prior to the date of your surgery.


Food or liquid in your stomach may cause your surgery to be postponed or cancelled. Please follow these guidelines:

The night before your surgery, do not eat anything after 9 p.m. and do not drink anything after midnight

  • If your surgery is scheduled at 1 p.m. or later, you may have ONE cup (8 oz.) of water before 8 a.m.
  • Have a light dinner and avoid alcohol intake the evening prior to your surgery
  • Cessation of smoking as soon as possible but at least 24 hours prior to surgery is recommended as beneficial to your post-operative recovery

Preparing for Surgery

Please arrive at the center at least one hour prior to your scheduled surgery time, unless instructed otherwise by surgery center personnel. If possible, on the day of surgery, remain at a phone where you can be reached. Please bring any orders from your doctor, X-rays or other items to be used at the center.

A consent form will be signed upon your arrival. If a patient is under the age of 18, the consent must be signed by a parent or guardian. Parents must remain at the center until their child is discharged. If you are a conservator for a patient, please bring copies of your medical power of attorney. Once you have been registered, you will be admitted to the pre-operative area where you will be prepared for surgery by a nurse and assessed by an anesthesiologist or CRNA.

Since we have limited space in our reception area, we ask that only one family member or friend accompany you. Please leave young children and siblings at home.


Remove any contact lenses. Do wear your glasses and bring a case for storage while you are in surgery. Wear comfortable, loose clothing and low-heeled shoes. A gown will be provided during your stay at the center. Leave all jewelry at home. All body jewelry must be removed.

Time of Stay

Generally, most patients remain in the post-anesthesia care unit for at least one hour after completion of surgery. However, you may require additional time. You will not be able to drive unless you have no sedation (for minor laser surgeries). A responsible adult must be available to drive you home approximately one hour after your surgery. The center will validate parking. You will not be allowed to return home without a responsible adult.

Post-op Restrictions

If you are having an anesthetic, you should plan to have a responsible adult family member or friend remain with you the first 24 hours following surgery.

You may feel dizzy or drowsy after your surgery. For your comfort and safety, do not drive or drink alcoholic beverages for the rest of the day. You will receive post-operative instructions from your doctor prior to leaving the center. Follow these instructions carefully. If you have problems after returning home, call your doctor’s office.

A nurse from Red Rock Surgery Center will contact you at home to check on you condition. Please address any concerns at that time.

If there is an emergency DO NOT wait for the nurse to contact you! Call 911 or obtain a ride to the nearest emergency room.

Please limit your activities for a few days after your procedure. You should consult your physician prior to returning to work and resuming normal activities
