Ambulatory Surgery

Because of advances in surgical procedures and anesthesia, many surgeries performed today allow the patient to recover and go home on the same day. Outpatient surgery, when appropriate, has proven to reduce costs, reduce stress for the patient, speed up the process of healing, and reduce the time lost from work and family life. Outpatient surgery may also be called same-day surgery, in-and-out surgery, and ambulatory surgery. The surgery may be performed in the outpatient section of the hospital, in an outpatient surgical center, or in a doctor's office. We offer ambulatory surgery in many of our facilities. Your specific condition, the procedure to be performed, and your individual needs will help you and your doctors determine if ambulatory surgery is an option for you.
