SD Surgical Guide for Optimal Health: the Don'ts

For all around optimal results, your immune system should be in the best shape possible. The benefit – rapid recovery.

By following our Surgical Guide For Optimal Health you’ll be able to nourish and protect your investment.


We know you have been told a few times and probably told yourself that you need to quit smoking – but you really, really do if you intend on having surgery. Not only is smoking generally debilitating to your body but specifically before surgery because it disturbs would healing since smoke blocks oxygen to the operative site, not to mention can cause complications. 


This one can be tough for many because who doesn’t appreciate a glass of wine at night? However, alcohol can suppresses the immune system and should be avoided for 5 days prior and post surgery.


While aspirin is really good for heart health because it is a blood thiner, it should not be taken at least 10 days prior to surgery as it could cause excessive bleeding.


We know. Much like us , our clients are health conscious which means visits to the health food store are a common occurrence and you more than likely have a few of these around: Ginger, Ginkgo, Fish Oil, Echinacea, Ginseng, Kav-Kava, St. Johns Wort and Valerian Root. In their own they can complicate surgery. Stop taking 7 days prior and after.


Never take any medicine or supplements on an empty stomach. Food is needed to absorb minerals.


For wound care, Dr. Danovich will provide specific directions and needs for your surgery.
