Pre-Op Screening

To help take the stress out of surgery, we have streamlined the process of pre-operative testing and surgical preparation. Through our easy, all-inclusive pre-op testing department, all the paperwork and pre-examination requirements are taken care of during one session scheduled prior to your surgery.

Same Day Surgery Program

Surgeries in this program see patients checking in and out of the hospital on the same day they undergo surgery. Several surgical departments participate in this program.

Orthopedic surgery

Orthopedics is the specialty that treats injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedists undergo extensive training: four to seven years of orthopedic residency in addition to eight years of college and medical school. This extensive training provides the necessary expertise to properly treat, with non-operative and operative methods, various conditions affecting the bones, joints and muscles.

Some of the orthopedic specialties include:

  • Hand surgery
  • Foot & ankle surgery
  • Joint replacement
  • Spine surgery
  • Sports medicine
  • Shoulder & elbow surgery

After surgery services

Immediately after surgery, patients may be brought to the Recovery Room or Day Surgery Room, depending on the stage of recovery. The Post Anesthesia Care unit is staffed with nurses trained in post anesthesia care. The Post Anesthesia Care nurse monitors the patients when they wake up from anesthesia to ensure they are as comfortable as possible. The length of time patients stay after surgery depends on the procedure, the anesthesia used and the patient's response to both.
