Preparing for Surgery

Step 1

Schedule your surgery. Please call our office at (212) 241-3919. Please plan your surgery on a day when someone can drop you off and pick you up.

Step 2

Schedule your pre-operative testing.This generally consists of a chest x-ray, some blood work, and an EKG. We can advise you and help you make these arrangements.

Step 3

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care physician for a complete physical and obtain a letter of surgical clearance prior to your operation. We can also correspond with your physician as needed.

Step 4

Depending on the surgery you're having, you'll receive specific instructions from our office on what to eat and do the day before your operation. Ask questions if any of the information is not clear.
