Frequently Asked Questions


How much will my surgery cost? 

Our patient coordinators can only give an accurate cost after the surgeon has consulted with an individual patient.  Once a diagnosis has been established and an individualized surgical plan has been developed, our patient coordinator can give an exact quote.  You can visit these websites for national averages on surgical fees.

What medications (prescribed or over-the counter) do I need to stop before elective surgery?

You must stop taking any blood-thinning medication (i.e. aspirin, ibuprofen, coumadin, Plavix) for two weeks before surgery. A comprehensive list of medications to avoid is given to all surgical patients.  Prior to discontinuing any prescribed medication, you must consult with your prescribing physician.

When do my stitches come out?

This varies depending on what type of surgery you have, and can be anywhere from five to 12 days.

 

Will I have a scar after my surgery?
