We know there are options when it comes to your healthcare. Thank you for choosing OrthoNebraska!
Before Your Doctor Visit
To shorten your wait time, please bring your picture ID, previous images and insurance card with you to every appointment. If you’re a new patient, please fill out our new patient forms online. Filling out your forms ahead of time reduces the wait times for everyone.
Recover More Quickly
After your surgery or procedure, your doctor will give you a detailed plan for post-procedural care. Be sure you make arrangements to have a responsible adult with you for 24 hours after any procedure requiring anesthesia, and ask your doctor or nurse about any preparations you may need to make in your home to help you recover more quickly.
