SURGERIES

We can perform a wide range of surgical procedures, from minor procedures to surgeries requiring advanced techniques and equipment. 

Inpatient and outpatient surgeries—planned and unplanned.

Our hospital is equipped to handle a variety of inpatient and outpatient surgeries—planned and unplanned. Elective surgeries are the ones that are planned. Most surgeries begin with a visit to a physician or surgeon. They will explain the process from planning to recovery, carefully perform your procedure along with a surgical care team. It’s important to find the right person for this important job.

We count with a team of excellent, respected surgeons who have vast experience, advanced technical skills, passion for their work, and compassion for their patients.

Elective surgeries are usually performed Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. If it is more convenient for you to have your surgery done outside of this time frame, talk to your surgeon to have it scheduled at a different time.

Urgent/emergent surgery can be performed at any time of the day or night, depending on the needs of our patients. 

Presurgical Evaluations

Depending on your age, physical condition, and procedure, certain tests may be required before your surgery, including:

  • Blood testing
  • Chest X-ray
  • EKG (electrocardiogram)
  • Pregnancy test
  • Evaluation by an Internist and Anesthesiologist
