We have added the pre-surgical instructions to our website to ensure you have all the information you need when approaching surgery. To download these instructions and print them, please use the following link:

Pre-Surgical Instructions

1. You will be given several medications which will include but may not be limited to the following:

The remainder of your medication instructions are given to you at the conclusion of your surgery.

2. Please wear warm comfortable clothing.

3. Prepare yourself for a soft diet (i.e. yogurt, cottage cheese, protein drinks, hardy soups etc.). The reason for the heavy, filling but soft foods is that you will be taking medicines that should not be taken on an empty stomach.

If you are having oral sedation, please eat a good breakfast and take 2 tablets of Valium, 1 antibiotic and 1 anti-inflammatory 1 hour prior to surgery.

You will need to have transportation to and from our office and cannot legally drive for 24 hours after taking Valium.

If your treatment includes I.V. sedation you will be given separate written instructions.
