Surgery Services FAQs

What should I bring to my appointment?

Please bring your insurance card, along with one form of government-issued I.D. (driver’s license, state I.D. card, passport, military I.D., etc.). It is also helpful to bring complete medical history information, including: test results, ultrasounds, mammograms, x-rays and other clinical information that will help your surgeon fully understand your health history.

What types of surgeries do you perform?

Our surgeons provide a full line of surgical services, including the latest in laparoscopic procedures. Some of the types of surgeries include: gallbladder, breast, skin and soft tissue, colon, gastroesophageal reflux (heartburn), abdominal and endocrine. We also provide tattoo removal and Venefit® varicose vein procedure.

How do I obtain x-ray and test results or health reports from my physician?

Your physician’s office can provide you with films, slides or reports, depending upon your need. Just contact their office and provide the required release form. It is helpful to call ahead so files are ready in time for your appointment.

What should I expect prior to surgery?

We will conduct a health review prior to surgery, and depending on the results, you may be scheduled for further screenings. This could include blood work, an EKG, x-rays or other tests. You will also meet with one of our team members to discuss anesthesia.

How long will I be in the hospital?

The length of stay varies greatly depending on the type of surgery and your recovery. Your surgeon will go over expectations with you after surgery.
