What will I have to do before the procedure?

  • Get the blood test prescribed by your surgeon.
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs as they can increase bleeding
  • As the surgery will be performed on an outpatient basis, arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery.
  • Also arrange to have someone stay with you for at least the first night following your surgery.
  • Advise your employer that you will be out of work for at least a week.
