Various general, gynecologic and orthopedic surgeries can be
"laparoscopic", where a tubular endoscope is inserted through a
much smaller incision than one in traditional surgical
procedures. Laparoscopic surgery requires much less time in the
hospital and a significantly shorter recovery time. Orthopedic
surgeons trained in sports medicine perform arthroscopic surgery
as well as other advanced minimally invasive (MIS) procedures.
The surgical staff will instruct you on your post-op care and
answer any questions you may have before leaving the hospital.
One of our registered nurses may call you with a POST-OP CALL
within a few days of returning home. The RN will be checking to
see how you are doing, and answer any questions you may have.
The goal of our team of professionals is for you to have an
excellent experience with the best possible outcome. It is our
hope that Adventist Medical Center will be your first choice if,
in the future, you find yourself in need of hospital services.
