Medical Value Travel recommends having everything ready at least 3 weeks in advance.

The scheduled date for surgery is established by:
-    Patient’s schedule and receipt of pre-payment
-    Physician’s schedule
-    Travel availability

The two other main factors that could influence the departure date are the length of time it takes to obtain medical records and whether or not a new passport is needed. There can of course be unexpected events, but these are the most common delays.
