Anesthesia Preoperative Evaluation

The Roberta and Stephen R. Weiner Center for Preoperative Evaluation (CPE) is an integral part of our expanding focus on the perioperative care of surgical patients. More than 19,000 patients per year are seen at the Center, which is directed by Angela Bader, MD, a faculty member in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine. 

David Hepner, MD, an anesthesiology faculty member, serves as associate director and oversees resident education in preoperative assessment. Using the principles of risk estimation, appropriate laboratory testing and interpretation, and in collaboration with consultants from other specialties, the CPE ensures that patients are medically and emotionally prepared for surgery.
