Preoperative Care

Preoperative care is the preparation given to patients who are undergoing cardiovascular surgery. This medical service involves medical evaluations, diagnostic tests, nutritional counseling, emotional support, and medication adjustments as needed. 

At Twin Lakes Heart Center, we make sure to physically and mentally prepare you during the period leading up to your cardiovascular surgery. Our preoperative care approach significantly improves treatment outcomes, reduces the risk of postoperative complications, and enhances optimal recovery. 

Our Approach to Preoperative Care

Our preoperative care approach involves multiple steps to ensure you have all the support you need before undergoing a cardiovascular surgical procedure.

Personalized Medical Assessments

Circumstances like your medical history, lifestyle choices, and potential risk factors all come into play when it comes to your heart health. During your medical evaluations, we will ensure a thorough evaluation of these elements to ensure a holistic understanding of your health. 

Tailored Care Plan

After your medical evaluation, our team will develop a personalized preoperative plan tailored to your needs. This may involve providing dietary advice, prescribing an exercise regimen, or making necessary medication adjustments.

Continuous Education

We believe that well-educated patients make the best decisions for their health. At Twin Lakes Heart Center, our commitment to your heart health goes beyond in-office care alone. 

During your consultations, we will provide you with valuable information regarding your future surgical procedure, its risks and benefits, and what to expect during the recovery process.

Knowing more about what your medical procedures involve will enable you to actively participate in your health decisions. 

Unwavering Support and Emotional Counseling

We understand that undergoing a surgical procedure for a cardiac or vascular condition can be not only a physically demanding process but also an emotional one. 

Our team has extensive experience providing medical care through a deeply caring and compassionate approach. We will make sure to guide you through every stage of your heart health journey.
