During the preoperative evaluation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about your surgery. You will sign consent forms acknowledging that you have been informed about the risks and benefits of surgery.

Below is the History and Physical Examination form, which you are responsible for taking to your primary care physician or pediatrician to be completed within 30 days before your surgery date. You can bring this form to your preoperative evaluation visit or fax it to (310) 825-0151. 

Preoperative History and Physical Examination Form
