Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers

Day Surgery 

Thanks to advances in surgery and anesthesia, outpatient surgery, also known as day surgery, is a safe and preferred option for more and more procedures.  In a single day you can undergo surgery to have your gallbladder removed, or shoulder arthroscopy to repair a rotator cuff and go home soon after the procedure. Studies have shown patients recover faster at home than in the hospital.  Advances in anesthesia have produced shorter-acting anesthetic drugs.  They are very effective at keeping pain and nausea at bay and then quickly wearing off, without any lingering effects.

To have the best day surgery experience, it is important that you choose the right place where expert care is delivered in a comforting environment.  Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers has highly trained and experienced staff of surgeons and anesthetists, as well as experienced surgical nurses, who have a talent for helping patients and families feel at ease.   After all day surgery is still surgery.  It is important that you follow our surgery/procedures guidelines which you can downloaded here.  It is also essential that patients focus on being informed and prepared for your surgery or procedures.  Ask your physician or nurse what you can expect the day of your surgery and what your recovery will be like.

There are complementary programs offered on-site at Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers, such as physical rehabilitation and lifestyle management.  You can expect that you and your family members will be well cared for and well informed from the moment you schedule your surgery at Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers through your recovery at home.
