With state-of-the-art surgical suites and highly credentialed physicians and support staff, the hospital is well-equipped to handle the surgical needs of our area. Surgical specialties include general, orthopedic, ophthalmic, obstetrics, gynecologic, ENT (ear, nose, throat), urology, pain management and endoscopy. Limited services are also offered in plastic surgery and dental surgeries.
Seventy-eight percent of all surgeries are now performed on an outpatient basis, meaning the patient is operated on, recovers and leaves the hospital within several hours. The outpatient surgery center is designed for low risk procedures and offers patients a cost-effective surgical solution.
If you are having surgery at Laurens County Hospital, you and your surgeon will schedule a preoperative appointment. This appointment is for your preoperative health history and assessment with the Department of Surgery and Anesthesia. You will be interviewed by the surgical nurse liaison, diagnostic tests will be completed and you will be seen by an anesthesiologist based on your history and/or planned surgical procedure. Please go to the Outpatient Surgery Center lobby 10 minutes before your appointment and check in at the registration desk.
A parent or legal guardian must accompany minors.
Your individualized instructions will be discussed and you will be provided with a written copy of them during your visit. In addition to the nurse liaison instructions, please follow your physician’s specific instructions.
Before your visit is complete, please be sure to provide the surgical liaison with the phone number at which you can be contacted if there is a need to verify information with you and/or change your specific instructions.
