Laparoscopy, ENT, Orthopedic and Other Surgeries
Frisbie Memorial Hospital offers personalized care that makes patients feel right at home. Frisbie’s team approach means that we are there for patients every step of the way to ensure that we are meeting each person’s needs before, during and after surgery. Prior to surgery, our care management team will review and discuss options for discharge and coordinate the appropriate care, including rehabilitation.
Frisbie offers both inpatient and same-day surgical services that include a variety of specialties:
- Ear, nose and throat
- Oral & maxillofacial
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:
- Patient Handbook
- Preparing for Surgery: Eating/Drinking Rules Before Surgery
- Managing pain after surgery
Same-Day Surgery Program
As a result of new medical technology, most surgical procedures are performed same-day without the need for an overnight hospital stay. For most people, minimally invasive procedures and surgeries means a speedier recovery, less scarring, and fewer complications than open 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.
Immediately after surgery and depending on the stage of recovery, patients will be brought to a recovery room or day surgery room. Specialized Post Anesthesia Care unit nurses monitor patients when they awake from anesthesia to ensure they are as comfortable as possible.
