You may require additional pre-operative testing depending on your medical conditions.
Contact our office if you do not have a primary physician.
Do not eat or drink after midnight the night before your surgery.
If your doctor instructed you to take your medicine the morning of surgery, you may take the medicine(s) with a tiny sip of water.
If you are diabetic, please check with your primary physician about what dose of your medication you should take the morning of surgery.
Bring a current list of all your medications (including over the counter medication). Include the dose and frequency.

Do not shave your legs 24 hours before surgery. This can cause skin irritation.
