Pre-surgical Testing

If your surgeon determines that testing is required, an appointment with the pre-surgical testing department will be made at the time your procedure is scheduled. Pre-surgical testing takes approximately one to two hours and may include blood tests, x-rays or breathing tests.

During your testing session, you will meet with a nurse who will complete a health history and review your medications.

The pre-surgical testing area is located in the Kirkwood Pavilion, on the first floor. You can enter the building at the Sixth street entrance.

For more information, call 718.780-.5060.
