Pre-op & post-op instructions

Before surgery

Before your surgery, you will have plenty of time to ask your provider about what to expect and how to prepare. We want you to have the information you need to make informed decisions about your care and to be an active participant in your recovery. If there is ever anything you do not understand or would like to have explained further, please ask!

Preparing for surgery depends on what procedure you will be having. You will be given detailed instructions about foods and medications before your surgery as well as where to go and when to arrive on the day of your procedure.

After surgery

After your procedure, you will be given instructions about any medications you need to take as well as when to come to our office for a follow-up visit. You can learn more about what to expect after surgery by clicking here to download our surgery document.
