Northwestern Medicine Preoperative Clinic
All patients who are scheduled to have surgery or a procedure requiring anesthesia should undergo an evaluation prior to the procedure to insure optimal preparation for that procedure.
The Northwestern Medicine Preoperative Clinic serves as a single point of intake that ensures standardization of patient preparedness and health information management, thereby improving safety, efficiency and patient satisfaction throughout the entire perioperative experience.
