In brief: It depends

This depends on the facility, surgeon preference, and the the type of procedure being performed.
Most of the time, my patients are allowed to keep their underwear on.

In brief: Most of the time

Depending on the procedure and the facility (hospital or surgery center), many patients are required to remove their clothes and wear a hospital gown.
When i had surgery on my own hand, i left my underwear on. :).
