Preparing for surgery: Pre-operative surgical medical clearance

Depending on your age and medical history, you may be required to obtain medical clearance before surgery.

This can be done no less than one week prior to surgery. The clearance process may include a history and physical, blood tests, EKG, and a chest X-ray.

Your health is our priority. Therefore, we ask that you do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your procedure.

Also, alcohol and smoking should be avoided at least 24 hours prior to your procedure. If you develop a cold, fever, or chest congestion before surgery, please contact us immediately for rescheduling.

Post-operative needs and expectations

Recovery is an integral part of any surgical procedure. After your surgery, we recommend applying R.I.C.E. therapy (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) and limiting activity for a speedy recovery. Please do not remove the dressing from the incision site and take the prescribed pain medications as directed by your provider. For more specific information or if you have other questions, please directly contact NY Sports & Joints Orthopaedic Specialists.
