IF IT IS DETERMINED THAT PATIENT NEEDS TO HAVE SURGERY:
Please call our Surgery Coordinator, Christy at 281-364-9041, extension 126.
Surgery will be scheduled at the Memorial Hermann Surgery Center of The Woodlands or in some instances, Memorial Hermann Hospital in The Woodlands.
After Surgery is scheduled patient will need to schedule:
Medical clearance with family doctor or their cardiologist
If 45 years of age or older the patient will need EKG
If patient has other health issues they will need clearance from that specialist
All of these have to be done within a particular time frame prior to surgery. This will be discussed with the surgery coordinator.
Other appointments that will be made at the time of surgery scheduling are: a pre-op with our office, post-op, suture removal, 4 week follow up, and 6 week follow up
The insurance company will be called for benefits prior to surgery. At the time of the pre-op appointment with your surgeon, the amount not covered by the insurance company will be due. This amount is for our office only. The facility, anesthesia, etc. have their own billing/insurance departments. Each individual office will contact the patient for fees due. All quotes before surgery are an estimate.
If you have any questions please call our Surgery Coordinator, Christy at 281-364-9041, extension 126.
