Before Your Surgery

  1. You will be called by a pre-surgical testing nurse or scheduler who will ask you questions about your medical condition to help you prepare for your surgery.

  2. You will be asked multiple times about allergies, previous illnesses, previous surgical procedures and medications.

  3. If you are presently taking aspirin, aspirin products or any other medications, discuss with your surgeon whether these medications should be discontinued prior to surgery. Follow any medication instructions given to you by the anesthesiologist or your surgeon.

  4. Try to get a good night's sleep the day before your surgery. If you feel ill or develop a fever, call your surgeon. Your surgeon will decide if it is safe to proceed with surgery.
