WHO IS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR SURGERY?

  • All patient who have a pre-existent medical condition that is not under control cannot be approved for surgery. Here are some of the pre-existent medical conditions: uncontrolled diabetes, uncontrolled coronary disease, bleeding disorder, among others.

    Also, patients that have a terminal illness such as: terminal cardiac disease, end stage pulmonary insufficiency, advance malnutrition, uncontrolled coagulation disorders, among others.

    Patients with serious pre-existent medical conditions will be evaluated by a surgeon. If the surgeon determines that the patient is at high risk, the patient will be disqualified for surgery.

    Patients that have no family or friends who can take care of them after surgery are not candidates for surgery. (After surgery patient needs special treatment and they need someone to help them)

    Patients must pay the total amount of their surgery before the surgery date; otherwise, patient’s surgery can be delayed
