BRING AN ATHLETIC SUPPORT to your appointment. You will wear it home and for up to 2 weeks after the procedure. This is important. It will reduce your swelling and pain. We have support available to purchase in office.
BE PREPARED TO PROVIDE A URINE SAMPLE at check-in. It is standard practice to check urine for an infection prior to having an office procedure to protect your health. This is very important.
