Day surgery

The Day Surgery Unit at Cuero Regional Hospital offers diagnostic and surgical services combined with the highest level of care, experience, and support possible. A private and comfortable waiting area is close by for convenience. In consideration of time, pre-admission testing is performed prior the day of surgery to facilitate admission and treatment.

Procedures

The Day Surgery Unit performs a variety of surgical procedures that include colonoscopy, endoscopy of stomach, tubal ligation, dilatation and curettage, laparoscopy, local excision, cataract, arthroscopy of joint, bunionectomy, carpal tunnel release, hammertoe correction, trigger finger release, needle directed breast biopsy, central line placement, foreign body removal, skin cancer excision, vasectomy, epidural steroid injection, colposcopy, reduction of fracture, incision and drainage of access and other procedures.

These procedures are performed by our local physicians and/or specialty physicians. The average length of stay from admission to dismissal is 3-4 hours. Recovery care after the surgical procedure is completed will be done in the post anesthesia recovery unit; however, many times this is done in the patient room where family members may be with the patient.

Anesthesia is provided by our home town anesthetists, Andy Armondo, CRNA and David Solis, CRNA. A variety of anesthesia types are available including local, IV sedation, general, and spinal.

Your selection of Cuero Regional Hospital to provide your medical care is sincerely appreciated.
