Patient Optimization

Avatar Dr. Kyle Bickel Jun 21, 2019

After having a consultation with a surgeon, most patients will require anywhere from 6 weeks to several months before they actually have the operation. During that period of time, it allows them to see all the various specialists like the dietician and the psychologist and the gastroenterologist. Sometimes they also need to see a cardiologist or a pulmonologist (which is a lung doctor) to make sure that that patient is optimized for that operation.
