We want to make sure your surgery at OrthoWashington goes as smoothly and successfully as possible. To prepare for your surgery, we encourage you to review and complete the following steps:
While we will do our best to assist you any way that we can, you are responsible to understand your specific insurance coverage. Whether you have commercial insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid, we recommend that you contact your carrier in advance to clarify your benefits, determine if the doctor and the facility are both covered “in network", and determine if any pre-certification is required.

We will confirm your insurance coverage and contact you via phone and mail prior to you surgery to clarify what will be your financial responsibility (if any). If you have any questions, we encourage you to call our billing office at (425) 284-0660 or email
Be sure to talk to our office about any questions you may have about your surgery or the forms and information above.
Step Five - Surgery Day
Be sure to arrive at our Surgery Center on time to complete any outstanding paperwork and make final preparations for your surgery.
You will be asked to read our NOTICE OF PRIVACY PRACTICES (click here to preview) and sign an acknowledgment of your receipt of this information in our office.
It is very important for you to report any previously unlisted medications you are taking (including dosage and frequency) or changes to the dosage or frequency of medications you have already reported.
It's also important to inform us of any surgical procedures you may have received since your last visit to our office.
Step Six - After Surgery
Our nurses will give you and the person taking you home from your surgery verbal and written discharge instructions. It's very important that you follow these instructions to manage post-surgical pain and promote a quick recovery. You may also receive post-operative rehabilitation protocols to assist with your healing and recovery. A list of printed material you may receive after surgery is listed below.
