Undergoing major surgery can involve much more than the surgery itself. Many major surgeries come with required lifestyle changes that can be difficult to adjust to. Horizon Behavioral Health conducts assessments to analyze the patient’s level of readiness prior to surgery. It is important for the patient to understand the physical and emotional challenges that they might face post-surgery.
Some of the more common pre-surgical assessments that HBH performs pertain to transplant surgery and bariatric surgery. Both surgeries result in lifestyle changes afterward and this can be a sizeable adjustment for most.
HBH is one of the only clinics in the area that specializes in these unique assessments and understands the importance of preparation before major surgery, both physically and emotionally.
