Surgery of any kind requires planning and commitment on the patient’s part as well as the physician’s office you’ve chosen. Though you may wish to “get it over with” as soon as possible, remember that it will take you time to prepare adequately. This may mean acquiring a prior authorization from your insurance company, arranging time off of work, finding someone to accompany you to and from the hospital, setting a pre-surgery physical with your primary physician, and ceasing certain medications and supplements prior to surgery.
It is beneficial if you can be flexible in your choice of surgery time and location. It is also beneficial to arrange your consultation appointments and follow-up appointments at times you can keep so you do not need to reschedule and experience delays. A complete consultation with our doctors is, of course, the first step in your treatment. At the time of your consultation, we will provide you with full details regarding your pre-surgical and after-surgery responsibilities.
