In brief: You just have to ask

Your question is best answered by the person doing the surgery.
The most obvious reason is that the procedure is based on the diagnosis and the immediate pre operative evaluation. A not so obvious reason is training and experience. You informed consent is based, in part, on knowing the answers to these questions. So ASK.
