Perioperative Medicine

Our multi-skilled team coordinates all the necessary care needed to ensure that having surgery flows easily. This includes a phone call before the surgery to give the patient instructions about:

  • expected date and time of arrival

  • when you can last eat or drink

  • what you can and cannot wear into the operating room

  • and other specific instructions

 

Some patients will need to be seen in our Pre-Anesthetic Clinic in the weeks prior to surgery. Day surgery patients need to arrange to have someone drive them home and stay with them for 24 hours after surgery. Follow up calls are made to ensure that everything is going well post operatively.

 

Our main operating room, the pre-op/post anesthetic care unit (PACU) and our central equipment processing area are in a dedicated area on the main floor of the Hospital. Our patient and family waiting area is in the main lobby of the Hospital and is just down the hall from the PACU. The waiting area has a phone that can be used to call and enquire about a patient. Instructions are provided by the phone.

 

Our second operating room is used for caesarian sections and is on the second floor within the maternity unit.

 

Our surgical program offers the following specialties:

  • General Surgery

  • Obstetrical and Gynecological Surgery

  • Plastics

  • Urology

  • Dental Surgery
