Preoperative Care


Midwest Medical Services

Our goal is to optimize and take the pain out of every step of your recovery. Midwest Medical Services, led by Dr. Dan DeSalle, works directly with MCJR to deliver personalized preoperative care for all joint replacement candidates. His team will coordinate care with the MCJR surgeons to ensure each patient is healthy enough for surgery.

After you schedule surgery, you will then have an appointment in one of our two offices with Dr. DeSalle for any preoperative and medical fitness testing before surgery.

This includes:

  • History and physical
  • Laboratory workup
  • Pulmonary and cardiac testing
  • Additional medical fitness testing if needed
  • Post-surgical care

Call 317-455-1064 to schedule this appointment in Indianapolis or Bloomington.
