Pre-Surgical Medication Information
There may be pre-surgical restrictions on the following medications that are specific to you, the procedure you're having, and the surgeon performing the procedure. You might be instructed to change dosage or discontinue use of certain medications for a period of 10 days or more before your procedure. It is very important that you follow the instructions given to you during your pre-surgical screening appointment, or by your surgeon. Failure to do so could lead to a delay or cancelation of your procedure. On the morning of your surgery, if your surgeon has instructed you to take medication, use no more than one ounce of water.
If you have questions about medications, call your surgeon's office or the Surgery Center at (585) 341-6707.
