Will I have surgery the day of my first appointment?
Your first visit is most likely for a consultation only. However, if it is an emergent condition it is possible that you will have surgery that day.
Do I need a referral?
You need a referral for any spine appointments or if your insurance requires it. If you have further questions please call the Orthopedics Department at 515-239-4475.
Do I need to contact my insurance company before I have surgery?
Please contact your surgeon's nurse, as they can best assist you with this question.
Do I need to come early to my appointment?
Many patients upon arrival need to complete forms or need additional orthopedic x-ray views.
