Before Surgery

 

There are a few steps that patients need to take prior to anesthesia. Have a light meal two or three hours before surgery. Refrain from consuming alcoholic breverages the night and day of the treatment. This can affect the level of anesethesia desired. if you chose to be sedated, you will need someone to accompany you to the surgery and drive you home after. If you regularly take medications, discuss those with the doctor to ensure that they are approved prior to surgery. 

All questions and concerns should have been satisfied on the day of the initial consultation. Should you have any major inquiries, we encourage you to contact us. We can make you a second appointment with the doctor if necessary. We want you to have a clear understanding of the problems, the solutions (it's benefits and risks), and alternatives before proceeding. We want you to be well informed.
