Getting ready for surgery is just like training for a marathon. The best results come after dedicated and carefully timed preparation, support from friends and heeding the advice of coaches.
Along with the Surgeon, Perioperative Care Clinicians are coaches throughout the surgical journey. They expertly evaluate patient readiness for surgery and provide guidance and management to be in the best shape possible for the upcoming stress of surgery on your body.
Preparing for surgery should occur as soon as surgery is declared. It includes an understanding of medical history, an examination, and selected tests to enable best treatment plans including impactful lifestyle choices.
