  • If you need to see another doctor, we will ensure that we will make every effort to schedule additional tests and consultations at the earliest available time.

The preparations for your surgery usually depends on your diagnosis, as your doctor will discuss on how to prepare you before your surgery take place. However, if you have to undergo general anesthesia, you may be required to do the following:-

  • Stop drinking and eating for a certain period of time before the time of surgery
  • Shower or clean, and possibly shave the area to be operated on
  • Undergo various blood tests, X-rays, electrocardiograms, or other procedures necessary for surgery
  • Sometimes a patient may be asked to take an enema the evening before surgery, to empty the bowels. Please check with your physician.
  • Do not wear makeup the day of surgery
  • Do not wear nail polish
  • Do not wear your eye contacts
  • Leave valuables and jewelry at home
  • Get advice from medical staff if you have dentures or other prosthetic accessories you may be wearing

In order to experience a more comfortable and efficient process, patients are advised to bring the following:

  • Loose-fitting clothes to wear
  • Insurance and medical card information

After Surgery: Discomforts

  • Nausea and vomiting from general anesthesia
  • Soreness in the throat if the patient needs artificial ventilation (the soreness is caused by the tube placed in the windpipe for breathing during surgery)
  • Soreness and swelling around the incision site
  • Restlessness and sleeplessness
