NextSCHEDULING AND SURGERYOnce you have determined that you wish to proceed, the scheduling process begins. If you haven’t seen Dr. Joseph in person before, you will have a complete examination in the office. Your first appointment should take about 1 hour and will be spent covering physical examination, pre and post-operative instruction, and review and signing of all consents. Surgery can then usually be performed the same or following day at our state-of-the-art Surgery Center.
FinallyAFTER SURGERYTypically, traveling patients stay in Southern California for approximately 7 to 10 days after surgery. This allows for close monitoring of your progress by Dr. Joseph and our staff. We will help arrange your stay if you desire hands-on nursing care after your surgery or if you need caregiver assistance with transportation. After you return home, we will continue to monitor your progress to ensure your result reaches its full potential.
