The Pre-Anesthesia Medical Evaluation (PAME) clinic at Mayo Clinic Health System optimizes the health and safety of each patient scheduled to have an elective surgical procedure. Pre-operative screening is scheduled with your primary care team. The PAME examination, which typically takes place within 30 days of surgery, helps to ensure a safe surgery and quick recovery. Patient education is also offered by phone or in person with our surgery nurse planners.
Not all treatments, tests and services are available at all Mayo Clinic Health System locations. Check with your preferred location in advance.
