**For patients with a History of Staph Infections**
In addition to your Pre-Op instructions, we ask that you follow these additional instructions in preparation for surgery:
Please pick-up your prescription for Mupirocin ointment that has been called into your pharmacy. Apply the ointment for 2 days prior to your procedure and the day of your procedure with a Q-tip, twice a day, inside your nose. This kills the bacteria that can cause wound infections elsewhere on the body.
If you have any questions pertaining to these instructions or any other concerns,
please contact our office before the time of surgery.
Thank you for your cooperation.
