Preparing for Your Cancer Surgery

Before your cancer surgery, our dedicated surgical team takes essential steps to ensure a successful procedure. During a pre-surgery consultation, our experienced professionals, including your surgeon, review your medical history, assess your current health, and discuss the necessity of the surgery, along with potential risks, benefits, and alternatives. We provide clear postoperative care instructions and address all your questions.

Financial considerations are crucial, so we recommend checking with your insurance provider for pre-approval. You’ll sign an informed consent form indicating your permission and understanding of the surgery. Medical tests, lifestyle adjustments, and medication reviews are integral to your preparation. Your commitment, combined with our guidance, plays a pivotal role in the success of your cancer surgery. At Valley Surgical RGV, your health remains our top priority.
