The core mission of the Center for Perioperative Care is to prepare patients for surgery. This includes both medical preparation to minimize risk and complications of surgery and educational preparation to answer patient questions and minimize anxiety and stress before procedures.
Our specific goals are:
The Center for Perioperative Care is a specialized service of the Department of Anesthesiology & Perioperative Care and is designed soley with the above goals in mind. As such, and bearing in mind the clinic provides a consultation service itself, the clinic does not provide routine history and physicals, arrange additional medical consultations, follow up on tests or studies recommended to the consulting services, or actually schedule cases in the OR.
The Center for Perioperative Care is a scheduled clinic; all patients must have an appointment.
Patients who may receive a scheduled phone interview instead of a physician visit in the clinic include:
Patients who have previously been evaluated by the Center for Perioperative Care and had surgery may not need to be re-examined as long as significant changes in their health have not occurred in the interim.
A patients primary care physician, cardiologist, and pulmonologist (when applicable) are all excellent resources and should be notified of any scheduled procedures!
