Types of Surgery
At one time having surgery meant having to stay in the hospital a few days. Today, advancements in minimally invasive procedures, pain control and anesthesia often make it possible to go home the same day.
Technology has transformed surgical care. Often you can avoid the need for large incisions or long healing times. Some surgeries are inpatient, meaning we admit you to the hospital for recovery and monitoring. Others are outpatient, or ambulatory, allowing you to go home the day of your procedure. Your doctor will determine the best approach for you, based on your diagnosis and health needs.
