Perianesthesia Testing

The Urologic Oncology Center Team Provides the Finest Preoperative Care

The Urologic Oncology Center team at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center may request that a patient attend perianesthesia testing several days or weeks prior to the scheduled surgery. During this visit, the center's expert medical team will review all of the patient's medical conditions, medications and laboratory results, ensuring that the individual is ready to receive anesthesia and undergo the surgical procedure.

The Testing Process

As part of the perianesthesia evaluation, the patient will have blood drawn, receive an EKG, and have X-rays completed. The perianesthesia team will make consultation recommendations for other services if needed prior to surgery, such as an appointment with a UH Seidman Cancer Center cardiologist. The team may also prescribe new medications or advise patients to stop taking current medications.

The perianesthesia meeting is an extra step that the center takes to protect and ensure the safety of all patients. Our goal is to exceed patient expectations by offering the best in preoperative care.
