What to expect
PRE-REGISTRATION: A few days before your procedure, call the CAMC registration staff at (304) 388-9677 or 1-800-348-9677, Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 8:30 p.m., or Saturday between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Have your insurance cards ready and make note of the confirmation number you are given.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE: Plan to arrive one hour before your scheduled surgery. At that time, we will review your health history and perform a brief physical examination. We also will ask you to sign routine consent forms. If the patient is under 18 years of age, a parent or legal guardian must sign the consent forms. It’s also very important to bring your insurance documents.
AFTER SURGERY: Following your surgery, we will give you complete written instructions and answer your questions about your recovery. If you experience complications, contact your physician. If you need immediate medical attention, go to the closest emergency room.
