Steps for a successful procedure day

  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Drink clear liquids up to 2 hours before your arrival time for your procedure. This will help the prep go better and also the procedure.
  • You will need a responsible driver. For safety reasons, you are unable to take a taxi, Uber/Lyft, bus or walk home.
  • Expect to be at the Clinic for 2-3 hours to allow for check in, procedure, and recovery.
  • Complete the prep as described in the prep directions that you were given. Completing the entire prep will make for a successful procedure. If the prep isn’t completed, you risk the procedure being cancelled.
  • Bathe/shower the morning of the procedure. You can use water to brush your teeth.
  • Although we strive to remain on schedule, some procedures do end up taking longer than others. We appreciate your patience.
