Outpatient Services

Same-Day Surgeries & Medical Procedures

An outpatient procedure is a surgery where a patient checks into and is discharged from the hospital on the same day. Most minimally invasive surgeries are outpatient procedures. A minimally invasive surgery is one where the surgeon does need to make large incisions to perform the operation.

How Can I Prepare for Outpatient Surgery?

We will be sure to give you thorough instructions on how to prepare for your outpatient procedure. Be sure to ask any questions you have about the operation- the more you know about the procedure, the better you can prepare. You should also be sure to ask what to expect after the procedure. Even outpatient procedures can be physically taxing, and you may have to take time off work or have someone stay with you overnight to help prepare food and other household chores.

Make sure you inform the surgeon of any medications you are taking and make sure that you can keep taking them on the day of your operation. For some procedures, you should not take even over-the-counter medications, vitamins, or herbal supplements.

Some other things to keep in mind for the day of your surgery:

  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing
  • Do not wear any makeup or jewelry
  • Do not put any lotions or creams on your skin
  • Many procedures demand that you do not eat or drink for 12 hours beforehand- this includes water, gum, and hard candies
  • If your procedure involves anesthesia, make sure you have a ride to and from the hospital as you will not be able to operate a vehicle for 24 hours

Please contact us if you have any questions about your procedure. Our team will be happy to answer any of your questions or provide you with a reminder of what we need from you for the day of the procedure.
