Why do you need Pre-operative clearance?

Pre-operative clearance should be obtained before most surgeries. Before the surgical procedure , you may need to be cleared by a medical professional to ensure that you are healthy enough to undergo surgery. This depends on factors like your age, risk factors, comorbid conditions etc.

A pre-operative clearance is done to assess the condition of the patient and acts as an opportunity to strengthen the relationship between the healthcare provider and focus on health risks associated with surgery. During your preoperative clearance appointment, your health care provider can determine ways to stratify your risk, anesthetic choices, and post - operative management so you have a successful surgery as possible.
