Patients of Office Based Anesthesia Services

You have chosen to undergo a procedure with one of the surgeons who utilize Windy City Anesthesia as their anesthesia provider. You can safely assume that Windy City Anesthesia will provide you with the most recent techniques in anesthesia care and has the equipment and medications necessary to perform your anesthesia.

*Please be sure not to have anything to eat or drink 6 hours prior to your scheduled surgery in your doctor’s office. Any deviation from this may cause your surgery to be delayed or canceled.

*Please be sure to discontinue any herbal medications, weight loss medications, aspirin products including ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil, etc) or vitamins for at least 2 weeks prior to surgery. This is for your safety.

*Please be sure to have an adult available to drive you home from the surgery and remain with you for the first 24-48 hours after surgery. Do not drive if you are taking pain medication, as this may result in altering your ability to operate machinery.

*Please wear loose and comfortable clothing; usually a buttoned baggy shirt and loose comfortable sweat pants. Please remove anybody piercings prior to coming into the surgeon’s office for your procedure as your surgeon may be using electro-cautery equipment and any metal on your body may react to this equipment, causing burns.

*Please tell your complete medical and surgical history. S/he will contact you both before and after surgery. Any questions can be asked of him/her at this time.

*Be sure to take your medication, (such as high blood pressure medications or heart pills) prior to your scheduled time of surgery if you do so every day. You may take your medication with a small sip of water but please do not drink more than a sip or it could result in the cancellation of your procedure.

Thank you for providing Windy City Anesthesia the opportunity to care for you!
