There are many reasons to have surgery. Some operations can relieve or
prevent pain. Others can reduce a symptom of a problem or improve how
your body functions. Some surgeries are done to find out what’s
causing a problem. Whatever the purpose, quality surgical care leads to
fewer complications and – most importantly -- better outcomes and
reduced costs. Our North Oaks Surgical Services family cares for your
family and gives you the personal attention you deserve.
For information on what to expect when you are having surgery at North
Oaks, please request a copy of our
Patient Handbook. If you are currently taking medications at home and are scheduled for
surgery, please complete a copy of our
Inventory of Home Medications and bring the list with you when you come for your procedure. We also
encourage you to read the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention’s
(CDC) information regarding
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and
Surgical Site Infections.
