At Home Before Your Procedure

  • The night before your surgery, do not eat or drink anything after midnight unless otherwise instructed by your doctor.
  • If you have been instructed by our nurse to take your morning medications, take them with only a sip of water.
  • Bathe or shower to minimize the risk of infection.
  • For your comfort, wear loose fitting clothing that is easily removed and foldable, and comfortable, flat shoes.
  • Remove and leave at home all jewelry and body piercings.
  • Bring your glasses, hearing aids and dentures with their cases for storage.
  • Please leave all valuables and money at home.
  • Arrange to have an adult accompany you to the center and drive you home after the procedure, since you will be unable to drive after the anesthesia.
