After Your Procedure

Traveling with a companion is necessary and the best way to ensure that your aftercare needs are met during the initial recovery period. Having a friend or family member assist you for at least 24 hours after surgery is very important.

If you are in need of a professional to take care of you after surgery, you can contact our preferred partner Henderson Home Care Assistance.

You must have an adult (over the age of 18), drive you to your surgical appointment. You will not be able to have your surgery if this requirement is not met.
