At Fairchild Medical Center outpatient surgery we realize that while we perform surgeries every day, that coming to the hospital for a surgical procedure can be quite overwhelming. You can be assured our team will work hard to ease your fears and anxiety, and make your experience with us as comfortable as possible. We perform a wide range of minimally invasive surgeries and procedures thru outpatient surgery, at times referred to as same-day surgeries.
Same-day surgeries or procedures may include:
- Endoscopic ( colonoscopy and EGD )
- Arthroscopic ( knee or shoulder )
- Orthopedic ( carpal tunnel release )
- Medication administration
Your physician will schedule a surgical time, and if needed, a pre-operative visit before your surgery. The pre-operative visit is scheduled at least 24-hours before surgery, and any test ordered by your physician will be completed during this time. A registered nurse will instruct you on pre-surgery procedures and also your activities after surgery. Please ask questions anytime during your surgical stay.
