All patients are seen for an extensive consultation to evaluate one's
candidacy for a particular surgical procedure.
Such suitability includes general health and well being and whether
or not a given operation is in the best interest of a particular patient.
After a mutual decision is made to proceed with surgery, a history
and physical is completed and certain blood work and tests are ordered,
depending upon the individual patient and the planned operation. You
will also be seen by an anesthesiologist unless you are having only
minimum sedation during your surgery. All these arrangements are coordinated
with you by our office staff.
