Your doctor's practice coordinator will schedule your surgery. Important information, such as your health history and insurance, will be obtained prior to scheduling your surgery. If there are changes to your physical condition after scheduling, please notify the surgery center as soon as possible.
After the business office reviews your health insurance, you will be asked to make financial arrangements with them prior to your surgery date.
A member of the surgery center team will contact you the day before your surgery to confirm the time of your procedure, which may be subject to change. At that time, he or she will also review any special instructions you will need to follow in preparation for your surgery. Please call The Orthopaedic Surgery Center at 509-344-8672 if you have not been contacted by 4:00 p.m. the day prior to your surgery date.
