If you are traveling from out of town for your hernia surgery, check out the Hotel Indigo, located less than 1 mile from Newton-Wellesley Hospital. They offer discounted rates for patients of the hospital, as well as provide shuttle transportation in the mornings and evenings on Monday-Friday.
We attempt to accommodate patients who travel for their hernia surgery by setting up a preoperative appointment in our office the day before surgery. There is also a hospital preoperative appointment that day. On the day of surgery many people are safe to travel several hours home. Flying is usually not recommended the day of surgery.
