  • Pre-operative evaluations, also known as pre-op clearance, are crucial assessments conducted before a surgical procedure to ensure a patient’s fitness for surgery. This process helps identify any potential health risks that could complicate the operation or recovery. The primary goal is to optimize the patient’s health and mitigate any complications during and after the surgery.

    During a preoperative evaluation, several aspects of a patient's health are reviewed:

    • Medical History: A comprehensive review of the patient’s medical history is conducted, including previous surgeries, chronic illnesses, allergies, and current medications.
    • Physical Examination: A thorough physical examination is performed to assess the overall health of the patient. This includes checking vital signs such as blood pressure, heart rate, and temperature.
    • Laboratory Tests: Blood tests, urine tests, and sometimes other specialized tests like ECG (electrocardiogram) or chest X-rays are ordered to provide detailed information about the patient’s health status.
    • Consultations with Specialists: Depending on the patient’s medical history and the type of surgery, consultations with specialists such as cardiologists, pulmonologists, or endocrinologists may be necessary.
    • Risk Assessment and Planning: The evaluation process helps in identifying any potential risks and planning for their management.
