Your Pre-Surgery Care

We need important information about you to ensure you get the best, safest care possible. Before your surgery, please prepare to provide your personal medication history and health status.

Your surgeon may want you to perform certain tests, have a preoperative appointment or use or stop taking certain medications before surgery. The preoperative appointment is an opportunity to talk with your surgeon and ask any questions before your surgery.

Above all, your health and your safety are important to us. Getting the right information helps us provide you with the safest, most effective care.
