Pre-Surgery Testing

  • Before your surgery, your physician’s office or a representative from Memorial University Medical Center will contact you for a pre-surgery interview. Depending on the type of surgery you’re having, the interview may be done in person or over the telephone. You will speak with a registered nurse about your medical history, receive information about your procedure, receive your pre-surgery instructions, and be encouraged to ask questions.

    Some pre-surgery testing also requires blood tests, urine tests, and/or a heart rhythm study.

    Many patients also benefit from watching an online video about their surgery. Your physician's office will give you log-in information to access the video.

    The pre-surgery testing unit is located in Memorial University Medical Center, next to the Provident Building and Parking Deck A. The unit is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

    You can reach pre-surgery testing at 912-350-8484 or 866-660-2926.
