  • What type of surgeries do I need to get court orders for?

    Any elective surgery or non-emergency major medical procedures. Most surgeries performed under general anesthesia require court orders. A guardian is not required to obtain a court order for dental treatment or routine physical examinations when general anesthesia is used.
