It's Not Too Early to Schedule Year-End Procedures

October 27, 2021

If you are planning on having elective surgery around the winter holidays, it's best to schedule early as this is the time of year doctors' schedules tend to fill up quickly.? An elective surgery is a procedure that is planned in advance, rather than one that is done in an emergency situation. Common elective surgeries at Loring include colonoscopies, tonsillectomies, hernia repair, hysterectomy, and other surgeries that may not be deemed medically necessary. At Loring, general surgeries are the most common performed elective procedures, often done the last quarter of the year, once a patient has reached their deductible.
