Suffolk Surgery Center
Today, thanks to the many advances in surgical technology and anesthesia techniques, more and more surgical procedures are being performed in the outpatient setting and do not require admission to a hospital. These procedures can be performed on the same day, allowing the patient to recover in the comfort of their home and return to their normal activities quickly. Whether or not a patient can have outpatient surgery is determined by your physician and is based on your specific condition and overall health status.
Our anesthesiology team is composed of experienced, well trained and board certified anesthesiologists, who also have experience in dealing with pediatric patients. Types of anesthesia administered include general anesthesia where you are asleep throughout the entire procedure, regional anesthesia where only a portion of the body is “blocked” from feeling any discomfort while you remain awake and local anesthesia, which numbs only the area being operated on. The type of anesthesia you will receive will be determined following a discussion with the anesthesiologist.
