Depending on the time of your arrival in La Paz, BCS, Mexico, you can schedule your first appointment with your surgeon, Dr. Manlio Speziale for the same day or the following day. During this appointment, you will need to sign the “Consent to Surgery” form, pre-operative photos will be taken and you’ll pay the remaining balance of the procedure selected.
You can have the pre-operative lab work and EKG done in your home town, or if you wish, they can be scheduled for your arrival in La Paz at the laboratory we recommend (these studies are not included in your package costs).
The surgery will be scheduled one day after the preoperative appointment or on the date agreed upon with the Surgeon.
Normally the majority of our patients stay in the hospital only for the day of the procedure, as most surgical procedures are ambulatory, meaning you can leave the Hospital the same night of the surgery. You will spend the majority of your recovery period at the Costa Baja Resort. The length of your recovery period there will depend on the recommendation of your surgeon and will vary depending on the type of procedure. During your time in La Paz, your surgeon will schedule two or three follow-up consultations where he will check and/or change dressings, assess your recovery, access your general health and remove your stiches.
