Preparing for Surgery

Dr. Incavo and his staff want to ensure that patients have all the information needed before surgery and feel comfortable with the process.  We are always available to answer any questions you may have.  Do not hesitate to contact the office.

Prior to your day of surgery, you will receive confirmation calls from Houston Methodist Hospital.  Other important forms that the staff may require you to complete include:

Request for Pre-Operative Clearance 

Surgery Cancellation Policy

In order of us to maintain our efficiency in the Operating Room, as well as giving full consideration to the hospital and anesthesia staff, it is necessary for us to implement a cancellation policy.   It is important that when you schedule your surgery/procedure you have thoroughly checked your personal calendar to make sure that your scheduled date is ideal for you.  Cancelling or rescheduling your surgery/procedure requires multiple phone calls to the hospital or outpatient facility, insurance company, and patient.

Cancellations less than two (2) weeks before surgery will be charged a $200 fee.  Cancellations less than seventy-two (72) hours before surgery will be charged a $300 fee.

This fee will not be applied toward your surgery/procedure and will be added as a charge to your account, not billable to insurance.

No Show Policy

If you do not show up for a scheduled surgery/procedure you will be charged the FULL amount of your surgery cost.

We thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding of the surgical scheduling process!
