Preparation for Your Weight Loss Surgery Travel

Your life changing surgery travel begins with a phone call with our Patient Travel Specialist. You will initially fill out a Patient History Information Form that Dr. Ahmed will review. Your patient Travel Specialist will go over important process aspects, medical conditions and pre-surgery testing and requirements for surgery with you once Dr. Ahmed has made recommendations.

While many aspects are common for patients, we care for the individual and their specific health concerns and needs. Southern Nevada Bariatrics uses an individual approach. Our mission of care is that there are no “cookie cutter” answers or even one particular surgery approach that is right for everyone.

You are an individual and your plan of care will be built around you!

Before your arrival, we will work with your Primary Care Physician or Specialist at home. We will identify any specific needs you might have and will make sure that your pre-surgery tests and clearance requirements are done before you jump on the plane.

Las Vegas and Your Arrival

A timeline will be established for travel, surgery and aftercare in Las Vegas. That timeline varies based on your specific needs and the surgery performed and will be discussed with you during your travel planning stage.

We have worked with area hotels that provide a discounted rate for our patients during their stay. The hotel selection has been chosen due to proximity to the clinic along with various levels of cost, so that no matter what your income level, you will have a tasteful and accommodating option for your stay.

You will need to bring a travel partner with you to help you get around after surgery, and of course to help you better enjoy your stay.
You will have relaxing, aftercare instructions that will help you feel your best before returning home. We want you to walk, so taking in a show or playing a few slots are well within your list of things to do, not to mention enjoying the sun and the lights of the city. Activity options will be discussed with you before you arrive.
