Find a Surgeon

Take Time to Get to Know Your Provider

It is important to have confidence in the doctor who will be doing your surgery. Whether this is someone you have chosen yourself, or a doctor or surgeon you have been referred to, you can make sure that he or she is qualified. This may include any or all of the following:

  • Ask your primary care doctor, your local medical society, or health insurance company for information about the doctor or surgeon's experience with the procedure.
  • Ask about the doctor or surgeon's credentials and whether he or she has any additional certifications or experienced in doing the procedure.
  • Make certain the doctor or surgeon is affiliated with an accredited health care facility. When considering surgery, where it is done is often as important as who is doing the procedure.
  • Look up your surgeon through Lakeland's Find a Doctor.  Many profiles include video profiles.
