The best procedure for surgical care is to have your primary physician set up an appointment with a St. Peter’s Medical Group surgeon; however, self referrals are accepted.
To provide great care to candidates for surgery it is important for the patient to be evaluated prior to surgery. The surgeon may also need to perform certain tests, provide preoperative information, or give you certain medication instructions at a preoperative appointment. This gives you the opportunity to talk to your surgeon and ask your questions before your surgery.
