The Pre-Operative Clinic
Shaare Zedek’s Pre-Operative (Pre-Op) Clinic plans and coordinates treatment for patients about to undergo surgery. The clinic is also the patient’s first encounter with the hospital and serves to allay fears, provide information and answer questions. The team offers evaluations and medical and nursing guidance for each patient awaiting surgery.
The doctor and anesthetist you meet in the Pre-Op Clinic will not necessarily be the same ones you will meet in the operating room.
After your visit to the Pre-Op Clinic, you will go home and we will confirm the date of your surgery. We will also provide guidelines in advance of the operation.
The date and time of your surgery will be coordinated with you but also determined by medical priorities and the current waiting list.
