Pre-Assessment Clinic

What to Expect

You should plan to be here at the hospial for about two hours. During your visit, you will see one of our Pre-Assessment clinic nurses.

During your visit, we ask you about your past and present health history, your current medicines, and any allergies you might have, and if you have had an anesthetic in the past.

We will go over instructions to prepare you for your surgery, and we will give you special instructions as to which medicines you need to take and not take on your surgery day. We also teach you what activities you can and cannot do after your surgery.

You may see an anesthesiologist. You may also see one of our physiotherapists or occupational therapists.

You may need to have some laboratory tests such as blood work, a heart tracing (ECG), or x-rays.
