Your Initial General Surgery Consultation:
Before your surgery, you will meet with the physician to share your medical history. At this meeting, the surgeon will also examine you and evaluate your case for surgery. The surgeon will describe possible options, tell you about what you can expect during surgery and during recovery and review the risks and benefits of the surgery.
Prior to Your Surgery:
The physician’s office staff will work with you to set up the best time for your surgery. They will give instructions on where to arrive the morning of surgery, what you can and cannot eat or drink, what to bring with you, and any other pre-surgical instructions. If needed, They will also schedule pre-surgery lab tests, such as blood work.
