This will include all of the necessary information to prepare for surgery, various hotels and lodging accommodation, and your required medical clearance documents.

Going About the Initial Consultation
Once you have secured your surgery date, preparations will need to be made in order to assure you are cleared for surgery. We will send a preoperative clearance form with your surgical package. This blood work needs to be completed at about 30 days prior to your surgery. Depending on your age and health, certain additional exams will need to be completed.Please request for your physician to fax over the results to 305-933-4733. Dr. Salama and head nurse will review to make sure everything is accurate for your safety.
