Many of our out-of-town patients elect to hire a nurse to stay with them the night of surgery.  Having an experienced nurse assist with medications, bandages and wound care can take much of the stress out of the recovery.

Hiring an overnight care professional will not only help with your utmost safety and comfort but will also give you peace of mind knowing that your needs post-procedure will be met.

If you are interested in overnight care after your procedure we recommend either of the following agencies.  Your patient concierge can coordinate which days you would like assistance.
