At Corrielus Cardiology, we pride ourselves on providing our patients with integrative and personalized preoperative care. We understand that the period leading up to a cardiac surgery or procedure is crucial.
Our team ensures that you receive the necessary medical advice, emotional support, and individualized care plan you need to prepare for your operation.
Preoperative care is the care and preparation given in the period leading up to surgery. This includes medical evaluations, diagnostic tests, and lifestyle modifications to ensure you are in the best possible condition for your procedure.
Preoperative care is an essential aspect of the surgical process as it helps to:
- Reduces risk of postoperative complications
- Improves surgical outcomes
- Enhances recovery from surgery
Our preoperative care approach involves multiple steps to ensure you have all the support you need.
Every patient's journey begins with a comprehensive medical evaluation. This involves a detailed review of your medical history, current health status, and any potential risk factors.
Based on the medical evaluation, we devise a personalized preoperative plan tailored to your needs. This could include dietary advice, exercise regimen, medication adjustments, etc.
We believe that patient education is key to successful surgical outcomes. Our team takes the time to explain the procedure, its risks and benefits, and what to expect during the recovery process.
We understand that undergoing surgery can be stressful. Our team offers emotional support and referrals to counseling to help you manage any anxiety or fear you may have.
Our preoperative care services involve multiple steps to ensure that you are fully prepared and as healthy as possible for the procedure you must undergo.
