Medications to Avoid prior to your Surgery
Any medications that you are currently taking should be discussed with Dr Joseph prior to your surgery.
There are two groups of drugs which are very important to avoid prior to your operation. These are aspirin containing medications and medications containing clopidogrel.
Both of these groups of drugs affect the ability of your blood to clot and thus increase the risk of bleeding during and after your operation.
Please make sure that you check this list carefully and avoid aspirin and clopidogrel for 10 days prior to your surgery, unless otherwise instructed by Dr Joseph.
