What is Ambulatory Surgery?
Ambulatory surgery — also called outpatient surgery — is when the patient is allowed to go home the same day as the procedure. If you are having an operation, before being discharged, you’ll spend a couple of hours in our recovery room. You’ll be monitored and given the opportunity to rest before going home. Our nurses will also talk through your home-care instructions before discharging you — including when to take medications, how to care for your stitches, and other important instructions. You can ask questions and feel confident in the next steps of your recovery.
Outpatient Surgical Procedures at an Ambulatory Surgery Center
Our board-certified surgeons — and their dependable staff of physician assistants, registered nurses, and certified surgical technologists — perform a wide range of quality outpatient orthopedic surgeries at the East Coast Surgery Center. Our ambulatory surgery center offers a convenient setting with all the advantages of a major hospital.
Some of the procedures that we perform include:
- Shoulder arthroscopies
- Knee arthroscopies
- Partial knee replacements
- Spine cases
- Wrist fractures
- Ankle fractures
- Pain management procedures
Benefits of Ambulatory Surgery
Those who receive ambulatory surgery tend to have better outcomes — including fewer risks of infection, shorter recovery times, and a better patient experience. Not all procedures are appropriate for ambulatory surgery, but they are a quicker way to get through surgery and onto recovery. That’s because outpatient surgery is often shorter and more convenient than inpatient surgery. You aren’t required to stay overnight, which directly results in cost savings.
