In brief: Not usually

The surgeon, when billing the insurance company, provides cpt "codes" for reimbursement that contain the appropriate diagnosis whatever that may be.
You can avoid that disclosure through "cash only" payment for surgeons and hospital fees. Physicians' are ethically required to keep your medical information strictly confidential from anyone other than designated healthcare personnel and entities.
