The Pre-Anesthesia Medical Evaluation (PAME) clinic in Mankato, Minnesota optimizes the health and safety of each patient scheduled to have an elective surgical procedure. Advanced practice providers, under the direction of physicians, provide appropriate, customized testing, evaluation and education to each patient based on their individual needs.
The PAME examination typically takes place within 30 days of surgery, and helps to ensure a safe surgery and quick recovery.
