Preparing for Surgery

You can start preparing for your surgery as soon as you have decided to go ahead with the procedure. Good nutrition is important for healing. Read through our nutrition area for tips on healthy eating. Stay as active as you can.  Cutting back on alcohol and tobacco will help your recovery. Read through information on our smoking cessation programs . These changes are best made several weeks before surgery since your body may react unpleasantly to sudden changes in your habits.
