How should I prepare prior to surgery?
Specific instructions pertaining to your surgery will be given to you by our office personnel. However, here are some general tips for preparing for surgery:
- Hold all blood thinners or anti-inflammatory medications 7 days prior to your surgery, unless advised otherwise. These include Aspirin, Plavix, Coumadin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Advil or Aleve. Patients on Xarelto or Lovenox will be given specific instructions on when to hold such medications.
- The night prior to your surgery, nothing to eat or drink after midnight. If you have to take medications, a small sip of water is OK.
- Hold all blood pressure medications the morning of surgery, except for beta-blockers (Metoprolol/Lopressor, Propranolol, Atenolol)
- If you have any questions, call the office before the end of business day.
