Preparing for Surgery

We provide our patients with a warm and caring environment at a time when they are often faced with a frightening and unfamiliar situation. Prior to surgery, you will receive counseling as to what will happen during your surgery. Our staff will listen to your concerns, and answer any questions you have. One of the benefits of having surgery at Broward Health Imperial Point is how quickly and efficiently our surgical team is able to coordinate your surgery.

Outpatient Surgery: Here This Morning, Home This Afternoon

Outpatient surgery offers you the advantage of having surgery in the morning and returning to the comfort of your own home later the same day in many cases. Because so many surgical procedures can now be performed quickly and efficiently, most doctors recommend it whenever possible for its economy, convenience, and short recovery time - at a fraction of the cost of inpatient surgery. Our experienced team of registered nurses are trained to work in collaboration with the surgical team of physicians and anesthetists to prepare you for surgery, assist in minor procedures, and prepare you to go home.
