Pre-Op Clearance

When you’re dealing with a condition that is severe enough to require surgery, you must confirm that you’re at full strength before going under the knife. With all the complications that can arise from operations, receiving pre-op clearance is pivotal. At New York Medicine Doctors, we can help you achieve just that. We’ll run all the tests necessary and help determine whether or not you’re ready for surgery.

What Goes Into Pre-Op Clearance 

Before your scheduled surgery, you need to go to a pre-op checkup. When you schedule this appointment with our team, various things go into this. In most cases, the pre-op checkup needs to take place a month before the scheduled surgery to allow our team to treat any issues that may be present. Additionally, a full rundown of your medical history will be looked at as well.

Tests That May Be Run 

In addition to going over your medical history, our team may need to run a few tests to determine if you’re healthy enough to undergo surgery. These tests check your vitals and once completed, you may be granted the clearance you’ve been looking for. Examples of the tests our team may have to run include:

  • Blood tests.
  • X-rays to check the lungs.
  • ECGs to check for heart issues.
