Be Aware of Perioperative Infection Risk for Immunosuppressants and Biologics
You'll be asked whether immunosuppressants and biologics need to be held around elective surgeries to reduce infection or healing risks.
The concern is that stopping them could lead to disease flares.
Work with surgery during your peri-op process. But expect to consult closely with rheumatology, GI, or another specialist...since evidence is limited.
