Consultation (Surgery)

Body Area: Abdomen
Body Parts: Intestines

A consultation with the surgeon will be necessary before any surgery. The surgeon will go over your medical records with you and any images or tests you have already had. They may need to give a physical examination or order further labs, images, or diagnostic tests. The surgeon will need to know about all medications you currently take, your average alcohol consumption, any drug use, or allergies before the surgery to ensure there are no preventable complications.
