Your orthopaedic surgeon will help you plan and prepare for your surgical procedure. You may have to obtain tests such as blood tests, cardiogram or chest X ray
You should tell your surgeon about any medical history and any medications you are taking. Your orthopaedic surgeon may ask that you see your primary doctor to make sure that you have no medical problems that need to be treated before your surgery.
Any dental problems or urinary or sinus infections must be treated before surgery.
You may be asked to donate your own blood in case you need blood transfusion after the procedure.
