HSS Perioperative Medicine Overview
Perioperative medicine is a newly emerging field of medicine that focuses on optimizing the health of patients who are planning to undergo surgery and providing medical care for those patients following surgery. As part of an institution-wide commitment to ensuring the best possible outcomes for surgical patients, the Perioperative Medicine Division was created within the HSS Department of Medicine in 2010.
The Division has responded to the extraordinary growth in orthopedic surgery procedures at HSS by establishing a coordinated approach to individualized assessment of surgical patients. Medical conditions that require optimization are identified prior to surgery by our team of internists who collaborate with our surgeon colleagues, cardiologists, anesthesiologists and other specialists to assure an optimal outcome of surgery. The goal of the Division is to focus on patient care, education, and research.
