Medical Clearance

-          In order to undergo general anesthesia you will need a medical clearance done by your primary care physician which will include and history and physical, laboratory tests, and possibly an EKG and some imaging studies based on your age and medical history.

-          If you have any chronic disease such as cardiac or pulmonary disease, you may need special clearance by that physician as well.  Dr. Wittig’s staff will help guide you to the necessary physicians for these clearances.

-          You will need to stop any blood thinners 5-7 days prior to surgery, this will need to be discussed with your primary care physician and/or your cardiologist.  You will be given a list of these medications during your consultation for surgery.
