Pre-op Clearances

Pre-op is defined as the period of time before a surgery. Before your operation, you will be required to meet with your primary care doctor for a checkup that includes:

    • Full physical exam
    • Blood tests
    • EKG
    • Chest X-ray
    • Urine and pregnancy test for women of childbearing age

A pre-op clearance checkup gives doctors time to treat any medical problems you may have before your operation.
