LRGHealthcare offers patients in the Lakes and Three Rivers regions state-of-the-art surgical services in their local community.
Whether you are having a surgical procedure done in the operating suites at Lakes Region General Hospital, Franklin Regional Hospital, or you are having an outpatient surgery at the LRGHealthcare Ambulatory Surgical Center at Hillside Medical Park, you can rest assured that you will be getting top quality care.
Before your surgery, you will have a pre-operative interview, either by phone or in person. During this interview, a nurse will ask you questions about your medical history, and you will have an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
Your procedure will take place in an operating suite. Our operating suites contain some of the most state-of-the-art technology in the hospitals, but most people will never see it because they are typically asleep when they arrive.
Many professionals work together to care for your during your surgical experience. Before you go into surgery, you will spend some time in our pre-operative area, where you will get ready for your procedure, have your temperature, pulse, and blood pressure checked, and have an IV put into your arm by a nurse. You will also meet the doctor or nurse anesthetist who will put you to sleep during your surgery.
During surgery, you will be in the operating room, where our surgeon works with an anesthetist (either an anesthesiologist or a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist), and a team of highly trained perioperative nurses and technicians.
Following your procedure, you will be moved to the post-operative recovery area. In this area you will be monitored as you wake up from your procedure. If you are staying over night, you will be moved to a room from this area, or if you are going home, you will receive your discharge instructions and be monitored here until you are ready to leave.
