In today’s fast-paced world so many people say they do not have enough time to get it all done. Here at Walton Regional Medical Center our staff works closely to make a hospital experience for surgery one that does not take more time than is required.

Same Day Surgery involves operations that do not require a patient to be admitted to the hospital for an overnight stay. Patients can arrive at the hospital on the day of the procedure and have the procedure done the same day. Recovery is done under the care of the nursing staff and a patient is able to return to his own home on the same day.

Walton Regional Medical Center provides a convenient and comfortable environment for Same Day Surgery patients. Procedures done in a Same Day Surgery program translate into lower medical expenses for the patient and less time away from family, home, and work.

Walton Regional Medical Center offers many Same Day surgical procedures including, but are not limited to:

  • Tonsillectomy
  • Cataracts
  • Hernia repair
  • Tendon repair
  • Closed reduction of fractures
  • Arthroscopic (knee) examination and repair

  • Laparoscopic cholecystectomies (gall bladder removal)

Prior to the patient’s surgery date, the patient will attend a Pre-Op counseling appointment and complete all of his admission paperwork. On the day of the surgery, the patient will bypass Admissions and go straight to the Same Day Surgery waiting room where a nurse will greet the patient and confirm the surgery schedule for the day.

During surgery the patients friends and family can wait comfortably in the Same Day Surgery waiting room equipped with wireless internet access, a business center, a children’s gaming station, television, and complimentary Starbucks coffee service. A private physicians consultation room is adjacent to the waiting area for the physician to provide updates and respect for privacy.

Once the Same Day Surgery patient has returned home, a follow-up call from a registered nurse will be made to monitor the patient’s progress.
