Will I need an MRI, Mammogram or bloodwork before?
Will I need to have an MRI and/or mammogram before coming in town to have my surgery? What about bloodwork and any other test required before surgery?
Yes. Dr. Khouri requires all his patients to have an MRI performed before surgery. This can be done once you are here in Miami, or you may have it in your home town. However, results of the MRI should be given on a CD to you so you can bring to Miami along with the written report prior to surgery. In some cases a mammogram will also be ordered. Most out-of-town patients may have their primary care doctor order their pre-op testing. The patient should provide our staff with their doctor’s name, number, and fax so an order can be sent. All pre-op testing results should be performed no sooner than 10 days prior to surgery, and results need to be faxed to Dr. Khouri before surgery.
