Center for Perioperative Care

The Center for Perioperative Care (CPC) is a specialized service provided by the UCI Anesthesiology & Perioperative Care to prepare patients for surgery. Our care team in the CPC is committed to prepare patients medically before surgery and to minimize anxiety and stress.

The Center for Perioperative Care (CPC) identifies and screens patients before a scheduled surgery at UCI to make sure surgery is safe and as stress free as possible. Patient evaluations are conducted in-person at the clinic as well as over the phone, depending on patient candidacy.

The CPC specific goals are:

  • To ensure that patients brought to the operating room are optimized for surgery.
  • To determine the need for additional tests that need to be done before the day of surgery.
  • To consult with and educate patients regarding special concerns and the possible anesthetic choices for the surgery.
  • To alert the operating room in advance of any situations which may require special handling or equipment for the patient.
  • To be a resource to surgical services for consultation.
  • Minimizes surgical delays and cancellations.
  • To provide the best anesthesia experience possible.

All patients must have an appointment with the Center for Perioperative Care in order to be evaluated.
