Preparation for surgery starts long before you are wheeled into the Operating Room. In order for your operation to go as smoothly as possible, it is your surgeon’s responsibility to make sure that you are fully prepared both physically and mentally. Your surgeon should review your procedure with you, and make sure that you are aware of any possible risks. He should thoroughly review your medical history, and make sure that this procedure is the best course of action for you. If there are any steps that you can take at home (cutting down on smoking, or adhering to a special diet), your surgeon should make sure that you have a list of instructions and are consistently on track. As a whole, these procedures are described as “preoperative care” and are vital to the overall success of your operation.

Poor preoperative care can lead to serious problems. Without the proper preparation, you may be at risk for infections, problematic healing, and excessive pain, as well as emotional trauma and stress. In the case of serious complications, poor preoperative care can even end in wrongful death. If you have suffered or lost a loved one due to poor preoperative care, you could be the victim of medical malpractice and may be entitled to significant financial compensation for your damages.
