Before Your Surgery
When you are evaluated for your surgery, the surgeon will explain the procedure and have you sign a consent form. If the surgeon feels you will benefit from an evaluation with the anesthesiologist ahead of time, it will be arranged before your surgery. Otherwise, you will meet the anesthesiologist in the holding area just before surgery.
Pre Admission Testing
A pre operative examination with additional tests may be necessary. You will receive a letter with instructions of where to go and what to do to prepare you for surgery.
