About Us

The Surgical Services Center offers a pre-anesthesia evaluation, which prepares patients for surgery after consultation with their surgeon. This appointment takes place before your surgery and may either be an in-person appointment or a telephone appointment, dependent on your procedure and medical history. Appointments are made either through the Puget Sound Military Appointment Center listed above or by the assistance of the appropriate surgical clinic. Patients can expect a series of interviews, patient teaching instructions, and diagnostic testing such as electrocardiograms, and lab work. The goals of the pre-anesthetic consultation include the following:

  • identification of clinical problems which may modify perioperative care
  • evaluation of a known medical problem which may alter anesthesia care
  • formulation of specific plans and alternatives for anesthesia care

Thank you for choosing Madigan Army Medical Center for your upcoming procedure. No matter how extensive your procedure, we know surgery is a significant event for anyone, and we want to assure you that your multidisciplinary team of providers will care for you at all times. In addition to improving your health in the safest of environments, our goal is to ensure that your surgical experience at Madigan is a positive one. We encourage open communication with our patients, so if you have questions or feedback that would improve your experience with us, please let us know! TRISS and JOES
