Many people like the idea of having surgery away from their home so that they can recuperate in privacy and without worrying about running into friends, business associates or who knows. Our office is accustomed to making arrangements for people traveling to Los Angeles for surgery. Everything from transportation to hotel accommodations at special rates can be handled for you. Pre operative lab tests, nursing care and follow up will all be coordinated by our office. Once you are in town you will be on “auto-pilot” and in the best of hands. Dr. Frankel requests that patients do not fly for eight days following surgery but driving is not a problem if there is a destination you would like to visit in the vicinity while you are recuperating. If you have questions regarding arrangements from out of town contact the office manager.
