What is the Preoperative Interview?

Since your anesthesiologist is responsible for your safety and comfort during surgery it is important that they conduct a preoperative interview prior to entering the operating room. During the preoperative visit, an anesthesiologist will ask several questions to help evaluate your medical conditions, medications and anesthetic history.
After evaluating your medical history the anesthesiologist will discuss the anesthetic options, as well as the risks and benefits of the anesthetic choices.
