Pre-operative Instructions

The following instructions may be helpful when preparing for your upcoming surgery. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any last minute questions. 

Your pre/post-operative prescriptions will be called into your pharmacy. For your convenience, please pick them up prior to your scheduled surgery.  Please bring your filled prescriptions with you to your appointment.

Please take all Physician prescribed medications as normal. If you are taking Coumadin or another blood thinner, remember to discontinue them as directed by your Physician. If you take antibiotic premed, please take it as directed before your surgery. You will feel better if you have eaten a light meal prior to surgery. We keep the office cool, so dress warmly. You may bring your iPod or MP3 player with you if you like.

In order to evaluate your progress and healing, we will see you for a post-operative check 2-3 weeks after treatment.
