Surgical Care Planning

When planning for surgery, we get to know your medical history and your goals. We create a surgical care plan personalized to the needs of each individual patient by considering your past and current health together with labs and results of recent diagnostic tests. Everything will be discussed with you, and we will take the time to ensure that your questions are answered.
