Fly-In Program FAQs

How soon can I return home post-surgery?

The timing of your departure after surgery depends on the specific procedure and your surgeon’s recommendations. In some cases, you may be able to travel back home within a day or two, while for more complex surgeries, a longer stay in the Los Angeles area may be necessary to ensure your safety and optimal recovery. Our medical team will work closely with you to determine the most suitable timeframe for your return.

Do I need to come back for follow-up care?

Follow-up care is essential for your post-surgery well-being. While some initial follow-up consultations may be scheduled during your stay, additional follow-up visits may be conducted remotely to minimize the need for multiple trips back to the Los Angeles area. Dr. Ryan M. Sherick will create a customized follow-up plan to meet your specific needs and recovery progress.
