Pre-Operative Planning Clinic


***As of August 29, 2017, Pre-Operative Screening Clinic is located in the North Tower room 3N400. See our maps to Find Your Way.

The Pre-operative Planning Clinic is located on the first floor of the hospital in the Ambulatory/Outpatient Care Clinic. The clinic provides patient assessments, pre-operative diagnostic testing; such as blood tests, ECGs and X-rays and education to prepare you for your surgery and safe discharge from the hospital. Before your surgery here is what to expect:

  • Please open your pre-op package and make sure you have everything completed prior to your interview.
  • You will have a telephone interview or you will be scheduled for an appointment in the clinic.
  • If you have a telephone interview scheduled please be available to answer the questions in a quiet environment.
  • If you have a telephone interview, you must bring your completed forms to the Admitting Department at least two (2) weeks before surgery.
  • In order for the team to have the most up to date information about your health, please ensure you have visited your family doctor for a completed history and physical prior to your Pre-operative Planning appointment.
  • Based on your needs, your clinic appointment will be scheduled with an RN and if required you will meet with an Anaesthesiologist as well.
  • Please bring an up-to-date medications list, your medications in their original packaging and any non-prescription items, vitamins or herbal remedies.
  • If your child is preparing for surgery, please watch this educational video with your child: Calvin Has An Operation.  

For patients having joint replacement surgery, we offer an education program to help prepare for the procedure which will be booked along with your pre-op planning clinic appointment. Please bring a support person with you. The hours of the clinic are: Monday to Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
