Pre-procedure Instructions

We are committed to your safety and well being. Here are a few helpful but important instructions that you should keep in mind prior to your procedure. These are general instructions. These instructions may not apply to your specific case. Please clarify with the office prior to stopping any medication. This is the same form you may have received at your visit.
  • ALERT the office if you are on any ANTICOAGULATION (blod thinners)
  • ALERT the office if you think you may be pregnant
  • ALERT the office if you have allergies to SHELLFISH or IV CONTRAST
  • STOP all doses of Aspirin 7 days prior to the scheduled procedure day
  • STOP all anti-inflammatory medications 2 days prior to the scheduled procedure day
  • STOP all prescription FISH OILS 7 days prior to the scheduled procedure day
  • If you and Dr. Bhandari have determined that you will benefit from IV ANESTHESIA, DO NOT EAT or DRINK 8 HOURS PRIOR TO THE PROCEDURE TIME. Take all of your scheduled regular medications, unless otherwise specified, with a sip of water the morning of your procedure. Expect to stay a bit longer in the recovery room.
  • You will need a driver to take you home if you will be receiving anesthesia. This is a precaution taken to keep you safe in the hours immediately after your procedure. Dr. Bhandari will not proceed with the procedure unless there is an identified driver.
