FAQs

What forms do I need complete and bring with me?

Please visit our new patient guide that details everything you need to do before your first visit.

Is my insurance accepted at OrthoNC?

Please review our Insurance Information and then review our Financial Policy. Please call us if you have any additional questions about our insurance policy or payment information.

Do I need to do anything special the day or night before surgery?

Someone from the surgery center or hospital will call you to discuss pre-operative instructions. They usually include the following:

  • Do not eat or drink anything, including water, after midnight the day of your surgery. You may brush your teeth, taking care not to swallow any water.
  • Follow your doctor’s orders regarding the taking of any medications the night before or the day of your surgery.
  • Refrain from smoking after midnight the day of your surgery.
  • Notify your surgeon if there is any change in your physical condition, such as a cold, fever or flu symptom.
  • If there is a chance you are pregnant, please notify your surgeon immediately
When should I arrive at the hospital/surgery center?

Arrive promptly at the time specified by the surgery scheduler. If you are having surgery at an outpatient surgery center, you will usually be asked to arrive one hour before your scheduled surgery. Times may differ if you will be admitted to the hospital prior to surgery. Most pre-operative blood, lab or paper work is preformed prior to the day of your surgery.

What should I wear the day of my surgery?

Bathe or shower the morning of surgery but do not apply any makeup. Wear low heeled, comfortable shoes and loose, comfortable clothing such as t-shirts, button-down shirts, sweat pants or baggy shorts that will fit over bandages or dressings following surgery. Do not wear contact lenses or jewelry.
