Before Surgery

Your orthopaedic surgeon will help you plan and prepare for your surgery. You may have to obtain tests such as blood tests, an electrocardiogram (ECG), or chest x-ray.

Be sure you have discussed your entire medical history with your surgeon, and have provided any medications you are taking.

Your orthopedic surgeon may ask you to make an appointment with your primary doctor to make sure that you are healthy enough to proceed with surgery.
