NHRMC Surgery Navigation Center

Located in the NHRMC Medical Mall, the Surgery Navigation Center offers one convenient location to receive evaluation, pre-screening and education before your surgical procedure. 

 

The Surgery Navigation Center has been designed to make sure you understand your surgical procedure and what you need to do to recover as fully and quickly as possible. We will communicate clearly what you need to know about our pre-screening process, your specific surgical procedure and what you can expect before, during and after surgery.

What to Expect 

Before your procedure, a Surgery Navigation Nurse will call to set up any interviews, appointments, or testing that you might need. You might need only a phone interview to gather information about your medical history. Or, you might need to come to the Surgery Navigation Center to be seen by a nurse and/or physician. Your nurse will help plan your pre-operative care and may require further testing based on your medical history or your individual procedure.

In addition to medical evaluation, you will receive pre-surgery instructions and information about your surgery. This is also a great opportunity for you to ask any questions.
