Blood Thinners Before Procedure

We never need for you to stop Aspirin before the procedure. Other medications like Plavix, Effient, Warfarin (Coumadin), Pradaxa, Xarelto, Heparin are treated on a case-by-case basis. If we need for them to be held before a procedure, we will ask you to contact the prescribing physicians to ensure the safety in stopping it. Of course, we will also work with you to facilitate this.
