Preop/Postop Information neuro
Pre-Op Patient Instructions
These guidelines will help you prepare for your Pre-Operative appointment.
Please bring a list of your current medications, both prescription and over the counter drugs, as well as a pharmacy name and number to your preoperative History and Physical appointment.
It is important that you discontinue any aspirin, products containing aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, or “blood thinners” for a full 7 – 10 days prior to your surgery. The presence of these drugs in your system could cause your surgery to be cancelled.
If you are having a fusion or kyphoplasty, you will be wearing a brace after surgery. Bob Bailey supplies our braces and will meet with you at your pre-op appointment in our office. If for any reason Bob is not able to meet you then, he will contact you to set up an alternative meeting to fit your brace.
If you were instructed to obtain medical clearance, please ensure that we receive all paper work prior to your pre-op appointment. Failure to do so will result in your surgery being rescheduled.
