Before Surgery

We are here to help you in any way they can. In order to make your surgical experience feel seamless, we ask that you please follow the instructions below.

1.

Avoid trimming, shaving, or waxing the operative area.

2.

Bathe with an over the counter chlorohexidine based soap the evening before your surgery.

3.

Nothing to eat or drink after midnight the evening before your procedure. Only pre-approved medications can be taken the day of surgery.

4.

Visit with your primary care physician for medical clearance in the upcoming weeks leading up to your procedure.

5.

Review your medication list with your physician for modifications in the perioperative time period.  Blood thinners should be held 1 week prior to your procedure date and rheumatoid medications will be managed on a case by case basis.

After Surgery

We will be by your side on the road to recovery. In order to insure you recovery goes seamless, we ask that you please follow the instructions below.

1.

Low grade fevers for the first 48 hours after surgery are not uncommon. If there are no contraindications, take tylenol and recheck your temperature in the proceeding hours. For temperatures over 103 degrees, call our office immediately.

2.

Plan your transportation ahead of time to have someone bring and take you from our surgical facility. For longer drives, find a comfortable position and make sure to stop every 20-30 minutes to walk around.

3.

Dressings can be removed 3 days after your procedure and should be kept dry. A new dressing is not necessary unless the incision is not completely dry; in that scenario the dressing will need to be changed on a daily basis until it is dry for 24 hours. Spotting on the dressing is normal. Increasing drainage or foul-smelling drainage is abnormal and you should contact our office right away.

4.

Showers are acceptable after your incision has been dry for 24 hours. Avoid submerging the incision in hot tubs, pools, etc. until after your first follow up appointment.

5.

Our minimally invasive techniques help to minimize post operative discomfort. Residual incisional pain will be treated on a case by case basis with prescribed post operative pain medication to be taken as directed.

6.

Bracing and post operative activity modifications are determined based upon surgery type and patient factors that are determined on a case by case basis. Speak with our surgical team on the details surrounding your specific activity plan.
