Once your surgeon’s office has scheduled you at Lewes Surgery Center, you can expect to receive the following information:
You will receive a phone call from one of the nurses prior to your date of service to review your medical history, medications, and prepare you for surgery. Some important things to remember:
Do not eat or drink anything after midnight prior to your scheduled surgery date. This includes water, coffee, tea, ice chips, gum, candy, and smoking. If you have questions, call our preoperative nurse line listed below.
If you are scheduled to receive anesthesia and/or IV sedation, it is required that you have pre-arranged transportation with a responsible adult aged 18 or older. It is required of your transportation to stay within 5 miles of the surgery center for the duration of your procedure. A recovery nurse will call your transportation to provide post procedure instructions.
Our billing department may call you prior to your surgery to review and verify your insurance, billing information, and inform you on any copay, coinsurance, or deductible. Please refer to our Billing tab for more information.
