Pre-surgical Testing & Education
Our specialized medical testing and planning helps to limit complications, particularly infection and helps you gain a better understanding of what you can expect before, during and after your surgery. Our program uses a multidisciplinary approach that includes our surgeons and anesthesia staff, as well as your primary care provider. The program ensures your care team is well-informed about your specific needs.
If you've traveled a distance to have surgery with us, or if you are not familiar with Concord and its surrounding communities, “We’re Expecting You” is a program just for you. Offered through our friendly and knowledgeable Hospitality Services Associates, it assists you and your family members with lodging, transportation, business services, and personal services before, during and after surgery.
