Preparing for Your Surgery
Once your surgery is scheduled, the next step is to have a preoperative visit with us to get everything lined up so that your surgery can go smoothly. We will need to obtain medical photos, any necessary X-ray imaging, and a medical clearance depending on the type of surgery and your health. This is done about a week or two prior to your scheduled surgery.
All paperwork will be handled during this visit as well, and the written instructions will be provided for you including the dates of your follow up visits. It also gives you a chance to see Dr. Ort again to discuss any details about the procedure and get your questions answered. Dr. Ort puts great emphasis in making sure that you feel prepared and comfortable about your surgery, because on the day of your surgery, we want to focus solely on providing great surgical care for you.
