This appointment is arranged through your surgeon's office. The appointment will take approximately one to one and one-half hours, and will generally occur between three and seven days prior to surgery. At this time, you will meet with a nurse to review your health history, and an anesthesiologist to discuss the plan for anesthesia. You will be given instructions as to which medications to take the morning of the surgery, and any fluid or food restrictions. Following your assessment, any necessary lab tests, X-rays or EKG's will be completed.
What To Bring To Your Pre-Assessment AppointmentPlease bring the following on the day of your appointment:
