Surgical Optimization Center

Preparation with a personal touch

We know surgery can be stressful for you and your family, but our trained experts at the Surgical Optimization Center are passionate about exceptional care.

We will help you before, during, and after surgery to minimize your hospital stay and quickly put you on the road to recovery.

How does it work?

Staff at Surgical Optimization Center wants you to be in the best possible health before surgery to reduce or eliminate any risks. The first step? After your surgeon refers you to the LHSOC, a representative will call you to schedule an appointment with us. An APRN will perform a thorough assessment, which may include:

  • A friendly phone interview to introduce ourselves, learn more about you, and talk about your health.
  • Reviewing your medical history as well as your current condition and medication.
  • A physical exam to identify any issues.
  • Additional screenings or referrals to have a firm grasp on any risk factors.

What’s next?

After the assessment, our team designs a streamlined plan specifically for you. The plan may recommend dietary changes, medication, therapy, how to improve organ function, ways to decrease infection risk, how to manage pain, and more, so you are in the best health and fully prepared to undergo any surgical procedures. 

We then coordinate with your physicians, share the plan with your family, and talk to you about how to follow through with the next steps.

Our commitment to you

The Lee Health Surgical Optimization Center staff provides personal, courteous, and comprehensive services to put you at ease in your time of stress. We will guide you, answer questions, and treat you with compassion and respect.

And we are committed to educating patients about how to improve their health not just for surgery – but also for life.
