Before Surgery and Anesthesia
A registration coordinator will call you to obtain information about your insurance coverage and any other information necessary to register you for surgery. If you have any concerns or questions regarding your surgery, the registration coordinator will assist you in getting answers.
Some medical centers may have a nurse call you prior to your surgery to review your health history prior to your admission. Gathering as much information as possible prior to the day of surgery is helpful in preventing day of surgery cancellations.
Many medical centers offer preoperative visits at the center to reduce anxiety prior to surgery. Research shows that when patients, parents and kids know what to expect, they have less anxiety, earlier discharge and less pain medication requirement. The tour provides an opportunity to meet with a registered nurse or an anesthesiologist and discuss any concerns you may have regarding your procedure. Please call the medical center of your surgery location to schedule a visit prior to your surgery.
You will receive a separate bill each from your physician, anesthesiologist and the surgery center. Those fees will be due on or before the day of your procedure.
