Your Physician will send paperwork to the surgery scheduler after a decision for surgery is made.
If you need medical clearance prior to surgery, the physician’s clinical assistant will instruct you on how to get the tests you need done.
If you DON’T need medical clearance, tests done or your medical clearance is complete, the surgery scheduler will call you to discuss your timeline for surgery and set up a pre-operative appointment if ordered by your physician.
If you have not heard from the surgery scheduler within 1 week and do not need medical clearance, please contact the surgery scheduler for your physician via phone or email.

The surgery scheduler will get authorization from your insurance plan.
Once the surgery date is set, the surgery scheduler will mail pre-operative instructions to you.
If your surgery is covered under an Industrial Claim, prior approval is required before a surgery date can be established.
