What I Should Eat or Drink Before Surgery?

Day Before Surgery:

Eat a normal healthy diet on the day before surgery, unless your surgeon specifically requests a change in what you eat.


Have no solid food or milk products after midnight.

Day of Surgery:

You can have water, fruit juices without pulp, tea or coffee (without cream or milk) up to 2 hours before arrival at the hospital. Sports drinks like Gatorade (12 oz or less) are acceptable.
