Cancellations


In the event of an emergency or cancellation of surgery after office hours, please call our main number (914) 493-8628 and leave a detailed message with our answering service.

Insurance and precertification


Our billing office will contact your insurance company approximately 7-10 days prior to your surgery date to obtain pre-certification for your procedure. However, it is your responsibility as the insured/patient to be aware of your current coverage including any deductibles, co-insurance or referrals that may be required. Should you have any questions pertaining to your pre-certification or if there has been any change in your personal information (address, phone number or insurance information) please contact our billing office at (914)962-8290.

For patients requiring a referral, please make sure that your referrals are still valid and have not expired. You may do so either through your physician’s office or with your insurance company.

We also advise you to contact your insurance company prior to your surgery to confirm that both the hospital and the anesthesia group are participating with your plan.


Feeding Instructions


Eating and drinking instructions specific to your child will be communicated to you the day before your procedure. Food or liquids in your child’s stomach during surgery can be VERY DANGEROUS!!. If these instructions are followed incorrectly, it may delay or possibly cancel the surgery. If you have any questions regarding these instructions please call our office at (914) 493-8628 or email us at westchestersurgery@pedsurology.com.

Day of Surgery


Please bring your child and the following items with you:
  • Immunization records
  • Insurance information
  • Favorite toy/blanket which will be given to your child after surgery.
  • Comfortable and loose fitting clothing.

Operating room holding area


Your child will be brought to the holding area and checked in. Only one parent will be allowed into this area at a time. You will be asked to wear a surgical gown while in the holding area. Anesthesia information

You will have the opportunity to meet the Anesthesiologist before your child goes into the operating room. Any questions regarding anesthesia should be addressed at that time. Even if the hospital participates with your insurance company, this will not always mean that the Anesthesia group participates. Listed below are the numbers to the various anesthesia groups that are affiliated with the different facilities. We advise you to contact the anesthesia group directly to confirm their participation with your insurance plan. This is not the responsibility of our office or billing department.
