Transcript:

Hello, I’m Dr. Michael Morris

We want to ensure you’re medically optimized and fit to undergo this operation. So, you’ll see our general medical consultants for what’s called pre-admission testing. 

What that entails is a history and physical examination by the medical providers, blood work, an EKG, and sometimes a chest X-ray. And then, if there’s additional testing that might be required—say you have a significant history of heart disease, and maybe you had a heart attack in the past—we might want a stress test, depending upon your specific situation.

If there are abnormalities in the blood work or some of the other exam findings, we might want additional testing. And the whole goal is to make sure that you’re fit and optimized to undergo this operation. 

This is handled by our general medical consultants, a group that we’ve worked with for quite a long time—many years. Their office is a directly across the hall from ours here in New Albany, Ohio.

If you would like to know more about the tests before your surgery, contact us at JIS Orthopedics. Our specialists in New Albany and St. Clairsville, Ohio, can give you the answers you are looking for. Schedule a visit with us today!
