Some people know what they want from the get-go and that is welcomed! If you are fairly certain that the surgery path is for you, here are a few notes on what to expect. First, we make our new patient appointment: 30-60min where you talk and we listen. This appointment also includes a (quick, gentle) pelvic exam- similar to getting a pap smear, but no pap collected.
Next, we review the surgery options- there are always options. Additional testing may be performed that will add to the treatment plan. Every question you have about surgery preparation and recovery is answered, and we sign the consent.
Finally, we meet in the operating room. Whether your surgery allows for same-day discharge or overnight observation, your case is our top priority. Your first postoperative check-up is within 2 weeks, then 2 months, and along the way, we are only 1 phone-call away,
