  • Endoscopy
  • Gynecology

  • Oral surgery
  • Orthopedics
  • Podiatry
  • Urology

Ambulatory surgery

We provide many surgeries without requiring an overnight hospital stay. Rapid advances in surgical knowledge, technique, and technology provide significant benefits for our patients. Decreased risk and less pain allow us to perform more surgeries on an outpatient basis. This has made it possible for our patients to recover sooner and go home the same day.

Typical same-day procedures include:

  • Eye surgery
  • Gynecological procedures
  • Hernia repair
  • Knee and shoulder arthroscopy
  • Skin biopsies
  • Urological procedures
