Our Procedures

Surgical Procedures

Denali Orthopedic Surgery sees patients by appointment. Our goal is to see you as soon as possible; therefore we ask that you please make your appointment as far in advance as possible.   If you are a new patient to our office, or need time to change and/or update your information on file with us, plan to arrive thirty (30) minutes early to your appointment.  The appointment scheduler will advise you of the proper check in time; or, if you prefer, you can print off and fill out a Patient Information Form and Health History Questionnaire  before you arrive.  You will need to bring all pertinent medical records, recent x-rays and billing information including insurance cards with you to your office visit. It is especially important to have your insurance information with you if you want us to bill your insurance company. Without this data, you will need to pay in full. A parent or guardian must accompany a minor patient.

Please be aware, all surgical procedures have risks. Any diagnosis may have damage greater than expected. The problem may not be discovered. If the problem is discovered, there may be no cure, in which case the end result may not be better. Every surgery has a risk of infection and the consequences can be severe. Most surgery needs an anesthetic and anesthetics have risks. There are other risks. Please understand that we can not promise you that your problem will be made "normal." Surgery never has a guarantee as to the outcome. If you have questions, please talk to your physician. We will be happy to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have.
