Emmi Online Tutorial
Prior to your pre-op visit, we also will remind you to complete our on-line educational tutorial called Emmi.
Emmi will prompt you to ask questions, which we encourage. Dr. Connall and/or our staff will answer these questions during your pre-op visit.
Pre-Surgery Visit Phone Interview
A few days before your pre-op visit, we will call you and review by phone your medical history and ensure that necessary tests, such as mammograms and blood work, are completed. We will answer any questions you have during that phone call as well.
We welcome questions at all times, as our mission is to keep you well informed and well prepared for your surgery.
During your pre-op visit, your medical history is reviewed and an examination is performed. Your "before" clinical photos are taken. The operative plan is reviewed, as well as the informed consent materials and your questions.
For implant patients, the implant style, size and volume are determined. Your prescriptions for medications are given to you and explained.
Angela discusses all of the arrangements for the day of surgery including how to prepare for your procedure and what to expect after surgery.
The pre-op visit is an exciting one. Sometimes patients are a bit nervous, but this is usually resolved as the planning and anticipation of your upcoming surgery come together.
