Same Day Surgery


Just a few years ago, a surgical procedure meant a hospital stay. With the advances in medical technology, the availability of minimally invasive procedures, changes in anesthesia processes, and a revolution in best medical practices, patients can have surgery in the morning and be home in time for dinner.

Saint Clare's operates Same-Day Surgery units at its hospitals in Denville and Dover as well as Saint Clare's Health Center at Sussex. These award-winning facilities are staffed by specialized nursing and clinical professionals and patients receive the same levels of quality care, compassion and individualized attention that they would receive if they were admitted to the hospital. With these facilities located within the hospital, the full complement of acute care medical services is available immediately if needed.

Same-day surgery offers benefits to patients over conventional inpatient surgical stays in the hospital. Patients spend less time in the hospital, usually an average of four hours, and since they don't stay overnight, it means decreased financial burden for them and their healthcare insurers. There is indirect benefit, too. By nature, same-day surgery is less invasive and has reduced recovery time, allowing patients to return to work and full activity sooner.

For more information on same-day surgery at Saint Clare's, consult your physician, call 1-866-STCLARE, or fill out our Online Inquiry Form.
