Preparing for Surgery

  • At your clinic visit, your surgeon will review your medical history, coordinate your medical clearances, and provide further information about your specific procedure and recovery process.

  • Prior to surgery - it is likely that you will need to see:

    • Your Primary Care Provider (PCP) for a general surgical clearance.​

    • If you have significant cardiac/pulmonary or other co-morbidities, you may also need to see your specialist for further clearance to ensure surgery is as safe as possible.

    • Additional imaging and labs- further CT/MRI/x-rays as well as labs may be necessary to ensure surgery is as safe as possible.​​

    • The Pre-admission Clinic at the hospital where you will have your procedure.

    • If there are any changes in your medical condition or new medications prescribed, please reach out to the clinic to update.
