Why Ambulatory Surgery?
Patients come to the ASC for a simpler, often elective surgery. It's a happier place to be.
Unlike a hospital, an ambulatory surgery center caters to the needs of patients who do not anticipate a long stay. You will be contacted by phone by a SCSO staff member prior to your admission to determine your individual needs.
Your doctors office will instruct you as to what paperwork you will need to bring in with you. You can expect to be greeted promptly on arrival by our friendly, experienced staff. You will meet your health care team (Anesthesiologist, RN, and other health care professionals) during your stay with us.
Your procedure will be performed in our modern Surgery Suites. All the latest technologies and equipment are utilized at SCSO. If you have a surgical procedure, you will spend a short time recovering in our 1st level recovery area, and then move to a comfortable lounge chair to continue recovering. At this point, your family members can join you in a relaxed, family oriented environment.
You will be going home with full home care instructions. Remember that you cannot drive yourself home and will need a designated driver.
