PREPARING FOR SURGERY

  • DO NOT take blood thinners or aspirin 2 days prior to surgery unless instructed by your physician. Please bring a written list of all medications including name, milligram, and how often it is taken.
  • Please leave all valuables at home as the surgery facility does not have a place to safeguard these items.
  • Please arrange for someone to transport you to and from the surgery center in a private vehicle, or we will be happy to arrange transportation to and from the surgery facility if none is available.
  • We also suggest that you are not left unattended for the first 24 hours following surgery.

THE MORNING OF SURGERY

  • DO NOT EAT BREAKFAST OR DRINK LIQUIDS.
  • Wait until after surgery to take morning medications, unless they are absolutely necessary. If so, take with a minimal amount of water.
  • Do take a bath or shower, washing your face with soap and water.
  • Do wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing and low heeled shoes. Sleeves should be easily rolled up past elbow.
  • DO NOT wear make-up.
  • DO NOT plan to drive yourself home.
  • If you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, please notify our office 24 hours prior to your visit or as soon as possible.

DISCHARGE

  • You will be discharged from our surgery center as soon as your post-operative instructions are discussed. Plan to spend approximately 2-3 hours at the Surgery Facility.
  • Since you are given a mild sedative before the procedure, it is recommended that you simply go home to rest for the remaining day.
