1. You will be required to have someone take you to and from surgery i.e. Spouse, Family member or Friend. You may uber to the facility, however, you must have someone responsible for your care and wellbeing to pick you up. You will need to ask the facility directly if the person caring for you is able to stay during your procedure.

  2. Depending on the procedure, we do not recommend air travel until after you are seen for your post-operative visit. (approx. 2 weeks)

    Each surgical facility/hospital will also verify your insurance benefits and a representative will call you separately. Anesthesia is a separate charge which the facility can give you information on.

In most cases you will be required to test 3-5 days prior to your scheduled procedure. Home testing kits will not be accepted.

  7. No. Your provider will discuss when you can resume your normal activities.

  8. You will be mailed a pre-operative packet with instructions on how to pre-register with the facility. Due to high volume, some facilities will not call the patient until the week of surgery.
