Re: Why does it take so long to get a surgery date?

my does the daVinci only on tuesdays and they have just been certified to do these the beginning of October. I wanted to wait until after Thanksgiving and between then and Christmas so I dont have to take so much time off. I dont have disability so im using what vacation and sick time I have and taking a couple weeks unpaid.spoke with the Dr, a few weeks later called and scheduled it, out to the date I wanted and now im just stockpiling stuff for home and hospital and figuring what to make to freeze and cook for thanksgiving

Re: Why does it take so long to get a surgery date?

Wow, that is a long wait! It depends on so much . . . the doctor's schedule, the OR's schedule, and all the insurance stuff I suppose. I had to wait about three weeks from my consultation appt until surgery day, but my surgeon only has one surgery day per week at my hospital and also in that three week wait was Labor Day weekend.

Best wishes to all!!

Like everyone else above, my Dr. only has surgery hours on Tuesday and she was booked for several weeks in advance. She's pretty popular.
