To prevent delay or cancellations, please follow these guidelines before surgery.
You may eat a light meal before 11:00 pm the night before your surgery. Do not drink or eat anything after midnight—no coffee or water. When brushing teeth, please be sure not to swallow or ingest any water.
Pain patients may have clear liquids –no dairy, cream or fats– six (6) hours prior to your procedure IF you are having sedation.
Do not drink alcohol for at least 12 hours before your arrival.
No smoking/tobacco after midnight the night before your surgery.
Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes including low-heeled comfortable shoes. Shirts or blouses with buttons in front are usually best. When you arrive, we will provide you with a surgical gown and non-slip socks to wear during your visit.
