Pre-Op / Post-Op Instructions

Pre-Op Instructions

Aspirin Users

If you are taking aspirin, Advil or similar medications, we ask you to stop for a week before your scheduled appointment. If you take aspirin on your physicians order, please check with their office. Aspirin can induce excessive bleeding during and after the procedure.

Blood Thinners

If you are taking any prescription blood thinners, such as Plavix, Coumadin, etc., you must have a pre-operative protocol, which will be determined by consultation with your physician.

Post-Op Instructions

These instructions are designed to help minimize post-surgical discomfort, and inform you of situations that may require special attention.
