How long will you be hospitalized for hernia surgery?


You will not be hospitalized for hernia surgery. It is outpatient surgery. Your stay at the outpatient surgical facility will be less than 3 hours on the day of your surgery. You will arrive at the surgical facility one hour before surgery. The surgery will take 30 minutes. You will then go to recovery for thirty minutes then be discharged back to your hotel room. You will come back to our office for a post op check the next morning. You will then be on your way home.

The picture is Los Angeles County Hospital which is where I did my Transplant training. The facility is immense. The training is classic. It was the best year of my traing. Just outside of the hospital you can get the best street tacos in the country.
