Fly Lebanon for Surgery
Are you interested in having surgery with Dr. Hamdan it is impossible to manage due to your location? Fear Not! Many of our patients fly in from all over the world. We have perfected the "fly-in patient" protocol, making it virtually possible for all prospective patients to manage. You can fly-in alone or with loved ones, and we will walk you through a process that will ensure complete care and a comfortable, pleasant experience.
Step One - The Initial Contact
Fly-In For A Personal Consultation And Exam
(ideal for the person who can afford to travel and/or who prefers to meet with the doctors and staff before making any decisions)
Receive a Virtual Consultation
(ideal for the person who is looking for a cost-effective way to determine whether or not Dr. Hamdan feels they can be improved and what options may be available)
In either case, the doctors will assess if you are a good candidate for the procedure you desire. You will be contacted by our Patient Coordinator and advised of the assessment and when applicable, all fees for surgery and related expenses.
Step Two - Scheduling
Once you have determined that you wish to proceed with the proposed surgery, the scheduling process begins. Our Patient Coordinator will offer available dates (usually a Monday/Tuesday combination). A deposit (payable by check or credit card) will be required to secure dates, and final payments will be collected at the pre-operative visit. For your convenience we accept all major credit cards. The first day will be spent in our office covering physical examination, pre and post-operative instruction, and review and signing of all consents. (A packet containing copies of all consents and instructions is mailed to you upon scheduling, so that you can peruse these at your leisure while at home, and thus be fully prepared). We allow two hours for this visit so that all questions can be answered.
Step Three - Recovery
Typically fly-in patients must plan. Depending on the amount of surgery performed, this length of stay may be adjusted; however, it is important to allow for the proper amount to ensure a healthy and safe recovery. We want your trip home to be a pleasant one, and that means following all of our guidelines. Your post-op visits will be concentrated into the required length-of-stay. In the event that you may feel a need for medical assistance after returning home, we are available to refer you to a local physician for check-ups. Your health and safety will remain our number one priority.
