What To Expect When You Arrive

Here we explain a general idea of what to expect when you come see us the day of surgery.


Patients will be picked up at the San Diego Airport right outside the baggage claim doors. As soon as you exit the baggage claim area, look around, and you will see a number of green signs that have various letters, such as N, O, P, these are the zone signs. When the driver contacts you to pick you up, he will ask you to stand by one of these zone signs, let him know the letter of the sign you are standing next to, so that he can easily locate you at the airport. Once the driver has picked you up, and any other patients that are having surgery that day, he will then drive you across the U.S./Mexico border to our Surgical Center.
