Pre-op information

Depending on the time of your surgery you will be asked to present between 7am and 12pm.

You will need to fast from midnight the night before your surgery. For some afternoon operations you will be able to have a light early breakfast.

Please shower and wash the morning of your procedure. Please inform us if you have any cuts, scrapes or broken skin as we may have to reschedule your surgery. Unless advised otherwise please take your regular medications as usual.

Some blood thinning medications (such as Warfarin and Plavix) will need to be stopped prior to surgery. We will inform you about this well in advance.

Please remove all jewelry, make up and nail polish prior to presenting to hospital. You may wear your glasses and dentures.
