Pre-operative Information

Prior to your surgery, an appointment will be scheduled for you to have a pre-operative work-up in the NYU Medical Center's Pre-Admission Testing Center.

The Testing Center is located on the ground floor of Tisch Hospital, near the Rusk Institute entrance on 34th Street.

The work-up, completed by one of our nurse practitioners, includes:

  1. documentation of your medical history

  2. complete physical exam

  3. routine blood tests and lab work

  4. consultation with an anesthesiologist
