South Texas Spine & Surgical Hospital encourages you to get Pre-Admission Testing 2-10 days BEFORE your surgery. Your physician will order specific tests based on the procedure, your age, and your medical condition. These tests usually include blood test, urine test, EKG and/or chest X-ray.
During this appointment, we will pre-register you for surgery. We will also give you specific educational information so you know what to expect during surgery and recovery. Your visit will take approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
