The COVID-19 pandemic has caused all of us to make major changes in our daily lives. Smilow Cancer Hospital has also made several changes to the way we care for our patients, including surgeries for cancer treatment. We realize that this is a very difficult time to be a patient, and we have taken a number of steps to make our cancer treatment and care as safe as possible for all our patients.
If you are scheduled for an upcoming surgery, it is essential that you follow guidelines for social distancing. Please isolate as much as possible, and stay away from friends and family members who have been ill, feverish, or have been in contact with other individuals known to have COVID-19-related symptoms or illness. Please review the following information, prior to your upcoming surgery.
