How long after surgery will my stay be?


One day. Hernia surgery is outpatient surgery which means you will be released to go back to your hotel room the same day. We want you to stay that night and come back to the office for your post op check the next morning. After your post op visit you can be on your way and travel back home that afternoon. Nearly all of our patients feel well enough to travel back home one day after surgery. That includes our patients from the East Coast, Alaska, Hawaii and across the seas.
