What kinds of tests will I need before surgery?
Some patients may be required to have routine blood work and urinalysis at least 14 days before surgery. You may also have a physical examination prior to the surgical date. Patients over 70, and those with cardiac, respiratory or significant medical history, will require a clearance for surgery by their primary care physician, cardiologist and/or pulmonologist. Most pre-admission testing can be performed either by your primary care physician or at the Surgery Center where the procedure will be performed.
