For Patients


Below are recommended steps to care for you after a surgery in our office.

  1. You have an increased risk of bleeding later in the day if you take any blood thinning products such as: Advil, Aspirin, Echinacea, Coumadin, Aleve, Gingko Biloba, Plavix and Vitamin E. If there is any bleeding during the first 24-48, please apply direct pressure with a clean gauze pad for 10-15min (without peeking). If this does not stop the bleeding, please call our office.
  2. After 24 hours, the protective bandage applied in the office may be removed. Once a day cleanse the surgery site with Techni-Care Surgical Cleanser along with nose, belly button and groin area. You can also apply antibiotic ointment (such as Neosporin, Polysporin or Mycitracin) as long as you are not allergic to any of these drugs. If you are allergic to any of these drugs, please let us know so that a prescription strength antibiotic ointment can be given.
    **It is you responsibility to let a nurse or the provider know that you need a prescription for a prescription strength antibiotic. **
  3. If you have stitches, avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activity until they are removed, especially if the site is near the knee or ankle area. Be careful of any activity such as squatting, that puts tension on the area potentially “popping the stitches.”
  4. If you have a low pain threshold please let us know so that a prescription can be faxed in. Please let us know if you are allergic to sulfa.
  5. Call our office if any signs of infection occur (redness, swelling, heat, increase pain, yellow discharge).
  6. Call our office if the surgery site swells like a “tomato” since this could be a hematoma.
  7. In the event of any unusual complications, please call Dr. Angela Moore’s cell phone at 214-906-7027, if it is not during our usual office hours.
  8. If your biopsy site has redness or irritation, you may purchase a product from our office called Cicalfate. Cicalfate will help the site to heal better and will help with any scarring. We also offer a product called Tri-Luma which will help with scarring and pigmentation after the site has healed.
  9. To help promote healing we also have Zinc supplements available in the office. Zinc helps with overall healing if you are zinc deficient and will help your biopsy site to heal more quickly. Zinc testing is a free test done in the office. Metabolic Multi is also another supplement available which helps blood sugars and with healing.
