Pre-surgical Clearances

Pre-surgical clearances are an important step in the surgical process and are designed to ensure that patients are in good health prior to undergoing surgery. TGH Urgent Care provides comprehensive pre-surgical clearances to help ensure that patients are in the best possible condition for their procedures.

What is a Pre-surgical Clearance? 

A pre-surgical clearance is a comprehensive evaluation of a patient’s health prior to surgery. The purpose of a pre-surgical clearance is to identify any potential health issues that could impact the success of the surgical procedure or increase the risk of complications. During a pre-surgical clearance, a healthcare professional will review the patient’s medical history, conduct a physical examination, and order any necessary tests, such as blood work or imaging studies.

What Does a Pre-surgical Clearance Include?

 TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track offers comprehensive medical evaluations for us to provide clearances that are tailored to the specific needs of each patient. Our pre-surgical evaluations may include:

  • Review of medical history: Our healthcare professionals will review your medical history, including any current medications, allergies, and previous surgeries.
  • Physical examination: A physical examination will be conducted to assess your overall health and check for any conditions that could impact the success of your surgery.
  • Laboratory tests: Depending on the type of surgery you are having and your specific health needs, you may need to have blood work, urine tests, or other laboratory tests.
  • Imaging studies: If necessary, imaging studies, such as X-rays or CT scans, may be ordered to further evaluate your health prior to surgery.

Our pre-operative medical evaluations include a thorough evaluation of the patient’s medical history, physical examination, and any necessary tests, such as EKG, chest X-ray, and lab work (including HCG, urinalysis, glucose, MRSA screen, HA1c, CBC, BMP/CMP, PT/PTT w/INR, and more). Our goal is to ensure that the patient is deemed “medically fit” for surgery.
