Your Surgery Schedule

Before surgery can occur, all patients will need to visit with an anesthesiologist. During this visit, tests required for surgery such as X-rays or electrocardiograms (EKGs) will be performed, and blood work will be completed. An anesthesiologist will review your medical information and can answer any questions you may have. You will be asked to give consent for surgery and for the use of blood or blood products in cases where it is deemed necessary. Preoperative instructions, including the location and time of your surgery, will be provided during your appointment, which typically lasts one to two hours.

Occasionally, you will also need what is called “medical clearance” from your primary care doctor or a cardiologist. This may mean additional appointments. Some surgeries may also require a special MRI.

Please contact Mischer Neuroscience Associates at (713) 704-7100 should you have any questions about your schedule.

Our medical staff will schedule your appointments prior to your surgery. Should you have direct questions for the anesthesia clinic, their phone number is (713) 704-3724. For example, you may want to call and inform the representative that you will need a translator or interpreter.
