SCHEDULING SURGERY

HOW DO I SCHEDULE SURGERY?

If you need surgery, and choose to proceed with Dr. Ohaegbulam’s recommendations, we will schedule your operation for the closest available date. 


There is some limitation to flexibility with scheduling as office visits and surgery are scheduled months in advance so that certain days may be impossible. In general, surgery will be a few weeks after your decision has been made, unless it has been deemed an urgent case and Dr. Ohaegbulam makes special arrangements with the hospital to provide a date sooner than otherwise would be available.

CAN I REQUEST A SPECIFIC TIME FOR SURGERY?

Please note that in most cases, we cannot guarantee a specific time for your operation. These times are determined by the hospital 1-2 days ahead of surgery based on what operations are taking place on any given day, priority some patients may have because of medical conditions, and unique equipment that may be needed by different surgeons on the same day.


You will receive confirmation of the time of your surgery, directly from the hospital, on the business day prior.
