This guide has nice section about what to bring and wear. After all Las Vegas is in the desert, so making sure you are prepared for this is essential to having a good time. This is especially true if you are traveling with a medical condition, so knowing to be prepared can be very important.

A great all around guide. It is full of great Vegas activities, not just the casinos. It also has a great listing of spas in the city. A great guide to having a good time, relaxing, and getting the most of your trip

Well balanced guide on medical travel. Had great information regarding hospitals and gave me ideas on activites I can do during my trip. Thankfully, my procedure is minimally invasive and the recovery time is short so I will have time plenty of time to enjoy the city :)
