Every surgery is unique. You should always ask your physician specific questions about your surgery or procedure. The following instructions are general guidelines. If they are different from the instructions given by your doctor or nurse, always follow the instructions from the medical professional.
History and Physicals, EKGs and Lab Work needs to be completed at least two days prior to surgery but no more than thirty days of surgery. If you are over the age of 50 an EKG is required before surgery.
