Surgery

This area consists of operating rooms well equipped to perform major and minor surgical procedures. The surgical department is staffed with professionally trained personnel to assist the general surgeons. Since procedures and preparation vary with different operations, your physician, anesthetist and the members of the surgery nursing staff will explain in advance what you may expect.

All surgical patients receiving anesthesia will be placed in the post-anesthesia care unit. Family members and visitors of patients who are in surgery may wait in the surgery waiting room located directly outside the surgery department. Relatives will be notified when the patient has been received into the post-anesthesia care unit. The length of time spent in the post-anesthesia care unit varies with each person and procedure.
