Before surgery, we may refer you to your primary care provider to complete a pre-operative medical clearance. This examination is to make sure you are healthy and do not have any medical conditions that could interfere with the surgery or the outcomes. Routine tests, such as blood tests, electrocardiogram, and X-rays, are usually performed before any major surgery.
If you do not have a primary care provider, we will schedule you with one at HSS.
If you are told you will need medical clearance, please ensure that this is performed within 30 days before your surgery.
