Mike in Denver,
Unless you are a pro-athlete who pays a premium, you are going to have to wait at least 8 weeks from exam to get the repair from Dr. UM, unless you make arrangements to fly over for the exam and get repaired the next day.
I am taking my wife with me. I never really considered going over by myself to have this done, but others have done it.
If you follow Mello on this board, recoup time is 8-14 days for return to full activity. I'm sure this depends on if you just have one side repaired and how big the tear was. I won't know this until I go through it myself.
Despite my attempts to answer all your questions, I would make sure you bring them up with Dr. UM and get answers directly from the expert.
