Setting the Date
Once your insurance company has approved your surgery and all pre-operative testing is done, you will be contacted by the surgical scheduler. She will ask you for your preferred surgery dates. She will then contact my surgical assistant to ascertain his availability on your preferred dates. We always do our very best to accommodate our patient's schedules. Generally, the waiting time isn't too long. Depending on the time of year, it varies between a few weeks to a couple of months. We offer a waiting list for patients who live nearby, or who can come with a couple of day's notice in the event of another patient’s unexpected cancellation.
