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.
