New Facial Surgery Patients
What To Expect At Your First Appointment
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. All patients will require a consultation prior to any surgical treatment. Rarely will surgery be performed the same day as your consultation unless Dr. Kuhn feels urgent treatment is necessary. Occasionally exceptions are made for out of town patients who make arrangements in advance.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your surgical referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary insurance card and/or completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 19 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A preoperative consultation and physical examination is mandatory for patients undergoing IV anesthesia for surgery. Please have nothing to eat or drink eight hours prior to your surgery. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medications (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
Dr. Kuhn has over 25 years of surgical experience in Omaha. He is an associate professor at The Nebraska Medical Center and has trained the majority of oral and maxillofacial surgeons matriculating over the past 30 years from that Medical Center.Omaha Office Appointments Map & Driving Directions
