Night Before Surgery Instructions

Prior to your surgery, please prepare yourself by completing the following:

  1. Do not eat or drink anything after 12 midnight the night before your procedure.
  2. You may take blood pressure/heart medication and pain medication on the morning of your surgery with small sips of water unless you are instructed otherwise.
  3. Please stop all asprin/ibuprofen medications one week prior to the surgery unless you are instructed otherwise. If you are on blood thinners such as coumadin, heparin, lovenox, or plavix please talk to your surgeon about when to stop these. Usually these must be held for 5-7 days prior to your surgery.
  4. Ask your health care provider for instructions regarding diabetic medications
