Schedule an appointment for a consultation and surgery as soon as possible to secure time in the surgeon's schedule and to allow time to make needed preparations. Patients may be asked to change their medications or supplements up to three weeks prior to the procedure, or to address an issue, such as high blood pressure, which takes more time to change.
Mayo Clinic works with hundreds of insurance companies and is an in-network provider for millions of people. In most cases, Mayo Clinic doesn't require a physician referral. Some insurers require referrals, or may have additional requirements for certain medical care. All appointments are prioritized on the basis of medical need.
