Your treating physician will likely recommend that you stop taking aspirin or related anti-inflammatory medicines (lbuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, etc) 14 days prior to surgery.

Anticlotting, also known as anticoagulant drugs should be suspended 5 days prior to surgery, unless otherwise indicated by the treating physician. This will help avoid bleeding.

All other prescription medications should be communicated to your surgeon’s team on your health questionnaire or your local physician prior to scheduling your surgery.
