I perform a Chem Panel before all surgeries. It is not optional. I have found abnormalities on pre-surgical blood panels in young and apparently-healthy patients. Congenital kidney disease & portosystemic (liver) shunts are just two examples of conditions that can be detected (further testing will be needed) on a Chem Panel and could cause complications and even death if the patient undergoes anesthesia and surgery.
