Clearance. Receiving a positive assessment for an operation is called preoperative clearance. An internist (a specialist) conducts the assessment to make sure a patient’s medical condition reveals no previously unrecognized diseases. This ensures the patient is in the best state of health possible before the procedure. This assessment helps the internists decide whether or not a patient is medically fit for surgery, including his or her category of risk. Preoperative clearance also helps a doctor identify the type of surgery a patient needs, saving time, money, and unnecessary surgery.
