Day of Surgery

  • You should not eat or drink anything after midnight on the night before your procedure unless instructed otherwise. It’s fine to brush your teeth, but do not drink any fluids.

  • DO NOT wear your contact lenses.

  • Please leave all jewelry and valuables at home.

  • It will be required for you to have someone to drive you home, and stay with you after your procedure. If you do not have a driver your procedure will need to be rescheduled. If arranging transportation, non-emergency van service may be acceptable, but you must have another responsible adult with you. Sedation will slow your reflexes so it is unsafe to drive after your procedure.

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing that is easy to take off and put on. If you tend to be sensitive to cold temperatures, please come prepared.

  • Please bring a list of your current medications, vitamins and supplements with their dosages and strengths.

  • DO take your heart or blood pressure medications with a very small sip of water as soon as getting out of bed the day of your procedure.

  • DO bring any inhalers that you use even if not used daily.

  • Please bring your insurance cards, driver’s license or other photo ID.
