Prior procedures may be relevant to how your doctor approaches your surgery. Having surgical and non-surgical procedures on the area being treated can drastically affect the outcome of your surgery. Therefore, your surgeon needs to know what you’ve had done, where, and when. With full disclosure, your surgeon can develop a plan to treat around specific circumstances that may arise during your procedure in order to provide you with the highest level of care. Don’t omit information on your intake forms or at your pre-op because you think it’s unrelated or unimportant. Let your health care provider make that determination. They may have questions for you – answer honestly. Even if you feel funny to tell them, remember that it is in your own best interest and that your surgeon wants you to have a positive end result as much as you do.
