The surgeon will discuss your diagnosis with you in detail .

Treatment Appointment

Your preoperative instructions should be carefully followed prior to your treatment appointment. Not following your preoperative instructions may cause a delay in treatment and/or may cause your appointment to be re-scheduled. Please arrive no more than thirty minutes prior to your scheduled surgery time.  Please anticipate that you and your escort will be at our facility for 3 to 4 hours on the day of surgery.  It is important to remember that while we try our best to stay on schedule, various circumstances may arise which can lengthen the time allocated for your or another patient’s procedure. We are also frequently called upon to treat emergency patients, which may cause minor scheduling delays.  As we cannot anticipate when this should occur and treat all our patients care very seriously, we greatly appreciate your understanding and patience.
