Ambulatory Surgery


Having surgery doesn’t mean you have to pack your overnight bag for the hospital.

Our Ambulatory Surgery Unit provides patients with the utmost convenience and care with planned, same-day surgical procedures that let you recover in the comfort of your home. From your pre-admission screening to your postoperative recovery, we’ll take care of you the entire day then send you home to recover in your own bed.

Typical ambulatory surgeries performed at Passavant include:

  • Nerve repair
  • Cataract removal
  • Intraocular implants
  • Diagnostic procedures
  • Elective sterilization
  • Carpal tunnel repair
  • Ear/nose/throat surgery
  • Dilatation and curettage
  • Hemorrhoidectomy
  • Bunionectomy
  • Breast biopsy
  • Dental surgery

If you are scheduled for surgery at Passavant, please review our steps for Preparing for Surgery above. Remember, you will not be able to drive for at least 24 hours after the surgery. Please plan on having someone with you the day of the surgery to drive you home and accompany you the rest of the day. A Surgical Waiting Area is provided for those who are waiting for family members or friends undergoing surgery. Read more about the Waiting Area above.
