Dr. Leatherman makes every effort to improve your ear, nose and throat medical problems with lifestyle changes, medications and other non-surgical interventions. Despite these efforts, at times a medical problem requires surgery to help resolve the problem. When surgery is necessary, it is important to follow some basic instructions before and after the surgery to help ensure the safety and long-term success of the procedure.
Please browse through the pre-operative information on this page to help prepare yourself for your upcoming surgery. You will also find post-operative instructions for many of the common surgeries Dr. Leatherman performs. This information is also provided and explained in our clinic prior to surgery.
