Starting your journey - the Pre-operative Medicine Clinic (POMC)

Our clinic is designed to meet your preoperative needs for your upcoming orthopedic or spine/neurosurgery procedure. The goal is to ensure you are well prepared for your upcoming surgery. We work closely with your surgeon and anesthesia team. During your pre-operative appointment, our team will guide you through your appointment, which will include testing, education and a thorough health assessment by the care team.

Prior to your pre-op visit someone from the nursing team will attempt to call you to complete a medical history over the phone. You can eat and drink as normal as our appointment does NOT require fasting for blood work.

Please review the documents below that pertain to your scheduled surgery. Additionally, all patients should review the "Before your visit" resources and the "Additional education" resources.
