Three days before the surgery, patients are contacted to review the surgical plan with the center’s nursing staff. Patients are contacted again a day before the surgery to discuss payment options, review medical clearance and other medically vital information. All patients are contacted the business day after the surgery to ensure recovery is going smoothly.
