Do I need to do anything special the day or night before my procedure?

Someone from the office will call you to discuss pre-procedural/operative instructions. They usually include the following:

  • Clears (i.e. black coffee, apple juice) can be consumed up to 2 hours prior to your procedure and a light meal can be consumed 6 hours prior.
  • Take your usual medications the morning of your procedure with a small sip of water with the exception of insulin or diabetic medications if you are a diabetic.
  • Stop taking all blood thinners (i.e. Coumadin, Plavix, aspirin) for at least 7 days prior to your procedure.
  • Do not smoke for 24 hours prior to your procedure.
  • Notify Dr. Brown’s if there is any change in your physical condition, such as a cold, fever or flu symptom.
  • If there is a chance you are pregnant, please notify Dr. Brown immediately.
