Education & Support for Your Surgery

Where Can I Find More Information & Support?

Making the decision to have surgery is a big one. You want to learn as much as you can about your condition and treatment, but it can feel overwhelming. The Banner Health surgical care team is your team, ready with the resources you need to help you feel in charge of your health.

Classes, Events & Support Groups

You can find support with other people who face the same issues and have the same questions you have. Check with a facility near you to find out about classes offered, such as the pre-anesthesia class. Many Banner Health locations also offer support groups for conditions and treatments such as:

  • Bariatric surgery
  • Cancer
  • Heart care
  • Laryngectomy, or removal of the larynx (voice box)
  • Organ transplant
  • Ostomy, an opening created surgically somewhere on the body to help get rid of stool or urine
