Pre-Operative Instructions Part I

  1. Please take the pre-op testing order provided in your surgical packet to a lab of your choice (i.e. Quest, Lab Corp, etc.) and have the required CBC lab work done within 6 months of surgery or ASAP if surgery is scheduled sooner than 6 months. If your surgery requires additional testing, please make sure all testing is completed during time frame indicated. It is your responsibility to have all testing completed no less than 30 days prior to your surgery or you may risk the cancellation of your surgery. The results should be faxed to Brandywine Surgery Center as printed on the form.


  1. Two forms need to be signed or initialed and returned to our office by fax or e-mail before your surgery. Please fill out appropriate areas that are highlighted.
  • Pre-operative Instructions – initial 2 lines. Please keep an additional copy for your records.
  • Request and Consent to Operation – print your name at the top of the paper, initial appropriate box for pregnancy (females only), sign and date the bottom of the paper, and have a witness sign and date at the bottom of the paper. Please keep an additional copy for your records.


  1. DO NOT FORGET to schedule your pre-operative appointment to see Dr. Saunders again within 1 month of your surgery date. This appointment can be made by calling (302) 652-3331 and press option # 1.


  1. Please remember that your final balance is due 30 days prior to your surgery. You may bring this with you to your pre-operative appointment IF the pre-operative appointment is more than 1 month before your surgery date.
