Preparing for Surgery & Procedure

If you do not have any major medical problems, Dr. Pateder will NOT need a preoperative clearance from your primary care physician before surgery. However, you will be required to have routine bloodwork prior to surgery. This can be preformed by your doctor OR by the preoperative department at Fairoaks or Reston Hospital, at whichever facility your surgery is being preformed. Please keep in mind that a MRSA screen is required before every surgery, if your PCP office does not offer this service (as not all do) and you are having your blood-work done there, you will also need to schedule an appointment with the Hospital Preoperative Department to ensure this is done prior to your procedure.
