To reduce the risk of medical complications, there are preoperative tests that need to be completed prior to your surgery. You will also require medical clearance to ensure you are at optimal health to undergo the procedure. If you see a specialist for a medical condition, such as cardiac or pulmonary, you will require clearance from your specialist in addition to your family physician. It is best to have your blood work and chest x-ray completed before your medical clearance appointment, so your physician can review them at your visit.
Are You Ready for Surgery?
If you answered no to any of the above questions, you are not ready for surgery. Please have the required testing performed as soon as possible, within the 30 day window. It is in your best interest to have your preoperative work (blood work, urinalysis, chest x-ray, EKG) completed before your appointment with your primary care physician so it may be reviewed. If not, your clearance status may be changed due to abnormal results.
