Doctor Answers 1
if you go the self pay ,time between the first appointment and the surgery is between 1 week and 1 month, because some labs, evaluation with other specialist and image studies have to be done. Surgery should be performed as long as all parameters examined are under control and associated diseases are adequately controlled.
