Pre-Surgical Clearance

PRE - SURGICAL CLEARANCE

Same-day complete surgical clearances with our physicians, lab work, electrocardiogram, and x-rays.

A pre-operative evaluation's main purpose is to identify and improve factors that increase pre-operative morbidity and mortality. We provide a complete surgical clearance which includes:

 

  • An evaluation with our physician

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG)

  • X-rays

  • Lab work

 

You can book an appointment to get all the tests and work you need to do in one day at our facility. Results usually take 24-48 hours, depending on the test requested. Results are then sent to your physician for further evaluation and next steps.

During your evaluation you will be asked about the following:

  • Age, height, and weight: The number of co-morbidities increases with age, and the mortality rate for most surgical treatments rises linearly.

  • Your history and family’s history of:

    • Diabetes.

    • Heart diseases, Blood clotting, bleeding disorders.

    • Pulmonary diseases or issues (asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, shortness of breath, cough. etc.)

    • Chest pain or tightness.

    • Seizures, blackouts, weakness, or numbness in the extremities.

    • Hypertension or hypotension.

    • Liver diseases, kidney problems, jaundice, or hepatitis.

    • Gastrointestinal problems or indigestion.

    • Thyroid problems.

    • Arthritis or joint pain.
