The Trip That Can Change Your Life

We ask that you arrive 1-2 days prior to your scheduled surgery date to meet with the doctor for a full medical evaluation and to finalize your surgical plan. If possible, we recommend that you bring a friend or family member to assist you after your surgery. We will request that you spend at least 3 days in Dallas before flying so your recovery can be monitored. We also have several hotel accommodations that we receive special rates exclusively for our patients, and free shuttle service to/from appointments.
