Although, several articles have been published on mentally preparation for surgery, there is still very little knowledge about that. Results: Prevention of heavy complications due to preoperative stress, needed to growing awareness among health care team especially nurses and health care managers and patient preparation by giving information. Discussion: Researches showed that giving information are useful for stress reduction by video tapes, papers and preoperative visiting without using professional words. Common practice of providing all patients must be replaced by an intervention matched with relevant characteristics of the patient. Also, there is a significant correlation between sex, age, kind of operation, previous experience, family support and preoperative stress. Mentally prepared patients use from relaxation techniques, comic tapes, supportive groups, pray, music and good physically fittness. To promote wellness and stress reduction, it is important that health care managers pay attention to good hospital design, such as comfortable visitor waiting areas, noise control, patient privacy environment, adequate ventilation and tranquizing pictures.
