The Staff of the Surgery Center of Southern Oregon
would like to welcome you to our web site. We’re glad
you stopped by.
Here, you will find information on what goes on in an Ambulatory
Surgery Center, the reasons why Ambulatory Surgery might be the
right choice for you, what to expect when you have Surgery at
our Center, and how to find us.
Unlike a hospital, an ambulatory surgery center caters to the needs of patients
who do not anticipate a long stay. You will be contacted by phone by a SCSO staff
member prior to your admission to determine your individual needs.
Your doctors office will instruct you as to what paperwork you will need to bring
in with you. You can expect to be greeted promptly on arrival by our friendly,
experienced staff. You will meet your health care team (Anesthesiologist, RN, and
other health care professionals) during your stay with us.
Your procedure will be performed in our modern Surgery Suites. All the latest
technologies and equipment are utilized at SCSO. If you have a surgical procedure,
you will spend a short time recovering in our 1st level recovery area, and then move
to a comfortable lounge chair to continue recovering. At this point, your family members
can join you in a relaxed, family oriented environment.
You will be going home with full home care instructions. Remember that you cannot
drive yourself home and will need a designated driver.
