What does the preoperative assessment for a sacrocolpopexy involve?

Your doctor will tell you what you should do before the surgery so that you will be fully prepared on the day of the intervention.

You will need several routine tests before you undergo sacrocolpopexy. Some of them are blood tests and urine samples. Sometimes, an electrocardiogram and X-rays might also be necessary.

The pre-operative tests will be taken one or two weeks prior to the surgery.

We will also have to examine you and measure your blood pressure, your weight, and your height.

The doctor will explain to you how this intervention is being done and answer any other question related to the surgery that you might have.
