Before undergoing major surgical procedures, most surgeons require their patients to complete a pre-operative evaluation. UrgentMED provides extensive pre-operative care at affordable prices for patients at our 16 convenient locations in the greater Los Angeles area and across Southern California.
What is Pre-Operative Clearance?
Pre-operative health screenings are one of the most important health services UrgentMED offers our patients. For many surgical procedures, the surgeon requires the patient to undergo a pre-op physical examination at some point within the 30 days preceding the procedure. UrgentMED offers comprehensive pre-op care for those preparing to undergo surgery. This includes pre-operative medical evaluations and testing.
What to Expect During a Pre-Operative Medical Evaluation?
UrgentMED offers pre-operative evaluations for those undergoing surgical procedures. Our compassionate and knowledgeable health professionals work closely with your surgeon to collect and evaluate your health information so your surgery can be a success.
During your pre-op medical evaluation, our expert medical professionals will evaluate:
- Your vitals, such as your pulse, blood pressure, height, and weight
- Your heart, abdomen, lungs, ears, and nose
- X-rays may be taken on-site
- Analysis of your urine, including hCG testing and urine culture
- Bloodwork may be done if required by your surgeon
- Your electrocardiogram (EKG) test, which will be tested on-site
At UrgentMED, we offer state-of-the-art medical facilities, meaning all of your testing and analysis will be conducted on-site – saving your time and providing you with the fastest possible results.
