Traveling for surgery can be an overwhelming thought, but it doesn’t have to be. Dr. John R. Miklos and Dr. Robert D. Moore are world-renowned surgeons that treat patients who travel to Atlanta, Beverly Hills or Dubai to seek their surgical expertise. Whether you are a local patient or a patient traveling internationally, it is easy to make arrangements to have your surgery performed by Dr. Miklos and Dr. Moore.
Local patients to the Atlanta or Los Angeles area will meet with Dr. Miklos or Dr. Moore once prior to scheduling surgery. Out-of-town patients (over 3 hours driving distance) will meet with Dr. Miklos or Dr. Moore the day of or the day before their scheduled surgery.
If you are traveling in for just a consultation or if you are a “next day surgery” patient, our staff is dedicated to assisting our patients in making the travel process stress-free. Though we cannot schedule your flight or reserve your hotel room, we can certainly make recommendations on where to stay and the best times to fly in for your consultation or next day surgery.
There are different timeframes allowed based on the type of surgery you are having. If you are having more than one of these procedures, then the longer time frame appliers.
These time frames are as follows:
Laparoscopic surgery – 72 hours
Vaginal surgery – 48 hours
Labial surgery – 48 hours after discharge from the hospital
Please make arrangements accordingly.
If you are having laparoscopic surgery or an extensive vaginal procedure, you will stay overnight in an extended recovery center, either at the hospital or in a licensed medical aftercare facility.
Arrangements must be made for someone to take you home or to the hotel (if from out of town) once discharged. You will not be allowed to drive yourself or take any form of public transportation (cab, bus, etc.).
If you are traveling alone, you have the option to hire a nurse to come to the hospital, sign you out, transport you to the hotel and make sure you are set up and comfortable for the night.
