We will coordinate with your local primary care physician to get lab work, EKG (electrocardiogram), letter of support, weight history and any other necessary items completed prior to travel if you would like. If your insurance company requires a few months of diet and exercise prior to surgery, we will coordinate with your provider of choice in your hometown. If your insurance does not have a diet and exercise requirement, an expedited process can be utilized.
You can arrive at our state-of-the-art testing facility and have all your testing done, such as cardiac stress test, sleep study, endoscopy, lab work, EKG, pulmonary function, chest X-ray, and medical assessment done in one day and have surgery as soon as two days later. You will stay in the surgical facility overnight and then transfer to your hotel for the remainder of your stay.
