Benefits to using Specialty Surgical of Middletown, LLC

What is an "out-patient surgical center"?

Ambulatory surgical centers are used for performing surgery on patients who do not require hospitalization and who are not expected to require more than a total of 23 hours for preparation, the surgery itself and for recovery. General anesthesia as well as local anesthesia may be used. 

Each facility must have at least one fully-equipped operating room; an area for preparing patients; x-ray equipment and clinical laboratory services and patient recovery rooms. All surgical centers must have a registered nurse on duty at all times when patients are in the facility.

Anesthesia and Sedation 

During most procedures, patients are given different types of anesthetics. These range from local anesthetics to general anesthesia. Before your procedure, you will meet your anesthesiologist (if applicable) and will be advised of your options and the risks involved. At this time, you can ask any questions that you may have regarding your anesthesia. You may be asked to sign a consent for anesthesia, if applicable. For endoscopic procedures (such as colonoscopies and upper endoscopies) patients may receive IV sedation.
