If You Need Surgery

Surgery

  • For scheduled surgeries, the office surgical staff will call with an appropriate date and time to meet your needs.
  • You should arrive about 90 minutes early on the day of surgery.

  • The surgeon will discuss the benefits and risks of the surgery.
  • We can give you surgical education brochures and pamphlets along with pre- and post-operative instructions.
  • We encourage any and all questions about the surgical procedure and recovery time.
  • We will schedule you for pre-admission testing one week prior to the actual surgery.

 

Radiology Studies

  • The radiology images are imperative to the surgeons’ evaluation.
  • It is the patient’s responsibility to obtain copies of radiology images and bring them to the office visit.

 

MRI and CT scans are necessary to provide anatomic detail and assess progression.
