In 2013, a well respected national publication ranked Frisbie Memorial Hospital second in the State of New Hampshire for Patient Surgical Safety. This national study compared nearly 2,500 hospitals for surgery in the areas of:
- Avoiding adverse events during patients’ hospital stay for surgery
- Avoiding extended hospital stays longer than expected for patient procedures
Frisbie Memorial’s board-certified surgeons perform state-of-the-art laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgeries including:
- Ear, Nose and Throat
- General Surgery
- Oral & Maxillofacial
Patients choose Frisbie Memorial for our surgical expertise and for the caring and comfortable atmosphere of the self-contained Surgical Services unit, which provides privacy and easy access for both patients and their families.
To help minimize the stress often associated with preparing for surgery, we have streamlined the pre-operative testing and surgical preparation process. For more information about preparing for surgery, you may access the following resources:
Same Day Surgery Program
Due to technical advances and new, minimally invasive procedures in the operating room, 75% of our patients have same day surgery.
Pediatric Services: Pedi-Parties
“Pedi-parties” are offered twice a month and is an opportunity for children to tour the operating room and watch an educational video about the entire surgical experience to help alleviate their fears of surgery. Families are able to join their children immediately after they return from the operating room.
After Surgery Services
Immediately after surgery, patients may be brought to the Recovery Room or Day Surgery Room, depending on the stage of recovery. Specialized Post Anesthesia Care Unit nurses monitor patients when they wake up from anesthesia to ensure they are as comfortable as possible.
