Learn How Our Skilled Colorectal Surgeons Can Help You

on the latest procedures. Based upon your age and medical history, you
may be asked to have blood tests, an electrocardiogram, and a chest X-ray
prior to your procedure. In addition, a physical examination by your primary
care physician or a specialist, such as a cardiologist, may be requested.
The need for this pre-testing will be determined by your surgeon and is
individualized for each of our patients.
In preparation for your adbominal procedure, you will be asked to avoid
eating or drinking after midnight the evening prior to the procedure.
Ask your doctor whether or not to take your prescription medications the
morning of the procedure. The need to take these medications is individualized
for each patient. In addition, you may be asked to take a bowel preparation
the day prior to your surgery. The need for a bowel preparation and the
specific type of preparation used will be individualized for each patient.
