Surgery: What to Expect
The initial office evaluation will determine if you are a candidate for surgery. If surgery is indicated, our surgery scheduler will contact you within three days after the evaluation to discuss dates, times, facilities, and pre-operative preparation.
Some surgical cases may require an assistant surgeon and/or surgical assistant. Such assistants are contracted by the surgical facility and bill independently under their group name. Questions regarding fees and insurance benefits for the surgical assistant should be directed to the billing office of that group. Some ancillary groups (pathology, radiology, anesthesiology, etc) providing services may not be contracted with all insurance. Please consult your insurance carrier to determine in network benefits.
A billing representative from our office will contact you after the evaluation to discuss your insurance benefits for the surgeon’s fee. Your estimated financial obligation will be required as a surgical deposit prior to the procedure.
