In Napa and Benicia
A Pre-Op or pre-surgery physical is required to make sure that you’re healthy enough for your upcoming surgical procedure.
Most surgeons require that you obtain a Pre-Op exam within 30 days of your procedure. This gives time for any labs, imaging, ECG, etc can be reviewed by a medical provider . It also ensures that the surgeon or anesthesiologist has adequate time to review the results of your Pre-Op exam and ensure that you have normal results that would allow the surgery to proceed.
