Generally, we do not require patients to stay the night in the San Antonio area; however, there are some occasions where Dr. Vogel might suggest this for cautionary reasons. We cannot tell you for sure if spending the night would be suggested without seeing you first in a pre-operative consult. If you would like to schedule a pre-operative consult to discuss this type of issue, as well as other concerns you may have with the procedure, please let our office know and we will be happy to schedule one for you. If you prefer to have the consult and procedure the same day, we would suggest you prepare for the possibility of staying the night in San Antonio, just in case, but know you may be released to go back home that day. Some patients will choose to stay one night, regardless, if they feel that they may have concerns that might arise overnight (i.e. excessive bleeding from wound site).
