Preoperative Tests

From Presurgical Testing to Recovery, Patients Can Trust University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center

Patients requiring surgical treatment for adrenal cancer can confidently place their health in the hands of UH Seidman Cancer Center physicians. Our integrated, multidisciplinary approach to care is very effective in treating adrenal cancer. We utilize state-of-the-art technology and our experience in clinically proven treatment methods to select procedures that meet the needs of each patient.

The Preoperative Visit

Adrenal cancer patients planning to receive surgical treatment at our center will undergo a variety of tests and receive instructions prior to surgery. During the preoperative visit, the patient will receive a health history and a physical evaluation from a doctor. Depending on the patient’s other medical conditions, he or she may need to be seen by other specialists before the procedure.

Multiple tests, including a blood panel, may need to be completed prior to surgery. According to the patient’s age, medical condition and the type of surgical procedure planned, an individual may be asked to have an EKG or heart tracing.

UH Seidman Cancer Center health care team provides patients with additional information about where to park, what to bring to the hospital and when and where to report for the procedure. Also, any other patient questions or concerns will be addressed at this time.

Patient Anesthesia Evaluation

If the patient has any other type of serious medical condition, he or she will be seen by the anesthesiologist prior to the scheduled date of the procedure to review his or her health record and to plan the appropriate type of anesthesia. If the patient is in overall good health, a UH Seidman Cancer Center anesthesiologist will see him or her prior to the surgical procedure.
