We have gone to extraordinary lengths to convey a message of warm professionalism upon entering our center's waiting area. Family members and guests should find the area exceptionally comfortable as we provide cozy chairs, reading material and an LCD flat-screen TV to make their wait more pleasurable.
Our receptionists and front office staff are readily available to greet and register patients as they enter the center. If you need anything while you wait, please do not hesitate to ask!
Each patient is escorted by a member of the nursing staff through the changing process and into the pre-operative area. A bed is assigned and a curtain drawn to provide each patient with privacy. Many patients will have an IV inserted into their arm in the preop area so that fluids and medications can be administered during surgery.
Some patients will also have “nerve blocks” in preparation to minimize pain during and after the procedure. Your physician will discuss what preparations are required for your specific procedure.
An anesthesiologist will obtain a medical history and examine every patient prior to administration of any anesthesia. During this preparation phase, one of your family or friends may wait with you until you are taken back for your procedure. They will then be directed back to the waiting room while you are in the operating room.
Patients will then be moved to one of our four spacious operating rooms. Our state-of-the-art ORs feature the latest technology and surgical equipment, ensuring that your surgeon has the tools he or she requires to give you the best care possible.
Patients are then brought to the recovery area following their procedure. Depending on the type of surgery and anesthesia administered, patients may discharged within an hour after they reach the recovery area. Our post-anesthesia care area (PACU) features 12 comfortable and private beds for patients for patients to recover in. Once discharged, you will be allowed to leave with your family member or guest.
