Due to less invasive procedures and quicker healing times, 85% of today’s surgeries are performed in the Advanced Ambulatory Care Center. Ambulatory surgery patients are briefed prior to their scheduled surgery to ensure that they fully understand the procedure. Patients are closely monitored after the procedure, given written post-operative care instructions and receive a personal telephone call from a registered nurse to follow up on their recovery.
