Preoperative Preparation

Plain x-rays of your spine may be necessary at the time of your preoperative appointments. This will help with pre-operative planning.

  • Blood work and urinalysis, medical clearance, and psychiatric evaluation may be necessary in certain circumstances if your medical history dictates the need.
  • Stop all aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, and alcohol two weeks prior to the procedure or as directed by the preoperative nurse. If you need to continue your medication, ask Dr. Yeung about the medication. If you need the anti-coagulant effect of aspirin for a heart condition or thrombophlebitis, please inform Dr. Yeung.
  • Report any concerns about your health that may affect the decision for surgery.
  • Do not eat or drink anything after midnight or eight hours before the procedure. This includes water, coffee, and juice. If you take medication regularly, ask Dr. Yeung whether you can take the medication with a sip of water.
