Outpatient Surgery

The Outpatient Surgery Department at CTMC strives to create a warm caring environment in which we provide excellent care. We know the stress surgery has on patients and those who care for them. Let us make this the most satisfying, least stressful experience it can be by allowing our family to care for your family.

CTMC operating suite

Our surgical services team works together to provide each patient with comprehensive, personalized attention directed toward the best surgical outcome.

In Fall 2009, CTMC renovated and expanded the Outpatient Surgery Department to add three new high-tech, integrated ORs for a total of six operating suites. The three integrated suites each feature overhead Stryker Equipment Booms for lighting. Monitors and anesthesia allow surgeons a more efficient and accommodating setup. 

What is outpatient surgery?

Outpatient surgery refers to "same day" surgery. The patient enters the surgical facility in the morning, has a procedure performed, and following a short recovery period, returns home on the same day.

What are the advantages of outpatient surgery at CTMC?

We provide personalized care in private rooms before and following the patients' procedures. Outpatient surgery allows the patient to return to the comfort of his or her home on the same day of their procedure.  In addition to providing services for our outpatients, we also prepare our patients who may be admitted overnight for surgical procedures.
