Out of Town Patient Resources

Many patients choose to have their surgery in Southern California and recover while relaxing in warm sun, gentle breezes and the soft sounds of ocean waves in the background. Dr Hendricks practice is literally a stone’s throw from several of the finest luxury hotels in the world, including the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach , Newport Beach Marriott, Balboa Bay Resort and the upscale Pelican Hill Resort (Ranked by Business Insider as one of the 15 Best Luxury Hotels in America) to name only a few.

Shopping could not be better than the open Fashion Island Mall and the South Coast Plaza, which is the 4th largest shopping mall in the United States.

Let our staff coordinate a vacation with activities for the family while you focus on recovery, so that you can return home with that rested look in your eyes and the new and improved body without the trouble areas you left home with.
