UBMC offers surgical specialties in the following areas: general, obstetrics/gynecology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology, and urology. In addition to these services, we have a well equipped endoscopy lab.
State-of-the-art laparoscopy equipment is utilized for many of the surgeries performed everyday at UBMC. These procedures create easier, faster recovery times for our patients. The majority of our surgical patients are cared for in our new same day surgery area and leave for home within hours after their procedure.
When scheduled for surgery at UBMC, one will need to complete lab work and other tests such as EKGs and x-rays if necessary. To better facilitate a patient on the day of surgery, these tests should be performed at least 1-3 days prior to the scheduled surgery. The patient will also be instructed to call the OR Department at least 1 day in advance of the surgery to confirm the operation. At that time the patient will be given any necessary instructions and directions pertaining to that particular case.
