In the hushed tones of one room, a surgeon prepares to correct a patient’s carpal tunnel syndrome; the other team members look on, eager to do their part. Further down, in another room, a woman is readied for her knee surgery. Yet another patient sleeps through his procedure, waking up an hour later to ask, “Is it over yet?”
These are but a few examples of what you’ll find in the 28-room Day Surgery Center. Tens of thousands of people will call upon this technologically advanced, patient-centered resource every year. But the center will also be a training venue, with students and residents working alongside their faculty mentors.
