Having surgery is no walk in the park

it can be very scary for most patients.

Will it work? Will I recover? How much pain will I be in? And how long will the pain last? These are common questions that race through our minds before going under. They are great questions, and the good news is that there are options that can help improve your outcome.

PREOP™ (Patient Risk Evaluation and Optimization Program) Assessment is what you should consider before your surgery. It helps provide your physician with all the details they need in order to help improve your emotional and physical health and helps to ensure the best optimal surgical outcome.

What is an PREOP™ Assessment?

Consider the PREOP™ assessment as a way of filling the gap after surgery. The assessment was specifically designed to help identify factors known to impact a patient’s pain and develop a specific plan to those characteristics. The evaluation functions as a “pain clearance,” just like a surgical clearance is obtained from other providers, like cardiologists or doctors. Patients will receive a pain plan in the event there are abnormal findings in the PREOP™ Assessment. Treatment options will also be offered to the patient. Additionally, participation in this program may help reduce the overall cost of care as well as the risks of readmission, reoperation, and infection.
