Here at Dr. Birriel’s clinic in Morgan City, Louisiana, he and his staff offer a variety of surgical services. This includes thyroid surgery, diagnostic biopsy, tumor extraction, the installation of gastric balloons, breast surgery, and other general surgical treatments.

Many of these surgical services are intended to further diagnose or directly remediate an existing medical condition. In many of these cases, preoperative medical clearance might be needed to ensure there are no undue existing conditions that could lead to a complication during surgery or recovery. This includes screening for specific factors and warning signs, as well as some other basic diagnostics, such as checking your blood pressure. If you are a referred patient, we might need you to fill out a basic questionnaire.

Be sure to let Dr. Birriel and his staff know about any existing medical conditions you might have, as well as any medications, prescriptions, and supplements you are actively taking. This is especially important for a condition or medication that might increase your risk of bleeding.

Dr. Birriel will go over any necessary preparation and aftercare measures needed to help you remain comfortable throughout the recovery process after the surgical treatment.

If you have a medical concern that requires surgical diagnostics or treatment, you should call 985-384-7173 to schedule an appointment or medical clearance at Dr. Birriel’s clinic in Morgan City, Louisiana.
