I Need/Have an Upcoming Surgery or Procedure
My surgery/procedure was delayed due to COVID-19. When will it be rescheduled?
Rescheduling delayed surgeries and procedures is our top priority. If you have a surgery or procedure that was delayed due to COVID-19, you can expect to hear from your Keck Medicine health care provider very soon.
Some doctors are also starting to schedule preventive screenings such as mammograms and colonoscopies. Please consult with your doctor to decide the timing of any routine or annual exams and to make the decision that is right for you.
All patients undergoing a surgery or procedure must get tested for COVID-19 within 48-24 hours prior to their surgery or procedure. Your physician can order these tests for you, by appointment. We recommend being tested at a Keck Medicine facility to ensure a sufficient turnaround time. For details on pre-procedural testing, click here. If you have questions, please reach out to us at (800) USC-CARE (800-872-2273).
