Pre-surgical Screening Clinic

Having someone in your family coming in to the hospital for a surgical procedure can be an anxious time.  Our highly skilled team of experts want to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible for our patients and their families.

Our Pre-surgical Screening Clinic allows us to meet with you in advance of your surgery so that we can be as prepared as possible, and so you can ask any outstanding questions to our team.

You may be asked to visit us several days in advance of your surgery to complete some testing, or you may receive a telephone interview. Your surgeon will decide which is best for you and your surgery.

You may also see an anaesthetist at this appointment to discuss how you will be sedated during your procedure.At Lakeridge Health, our Pre-surgical Screening Clinic operates in our Ajax Pickering, Bowmanville, Oshawa and Port Perry sites.
