Your Hospital of Choice for Outpatient Surgery
A number of area surgeons, specialists and patients from Yadkin and the surrounding counties, as well as southern Virginia, have made us their hospital of choice for general and specialized outpatient surgeries and procedures, including--
- General surgery, such as hernia repairs, breast surgeries, gallbladder and appendix removal and other laparoscopic “band-aid” surgeries
- Cataract surgery, lens implants and other eye and eyelid surgeries
- Reconstructive and corrective foot and ankle surgeries
- Gastroenterology diagnostic and screening procedures, such as colonoscopies, endoscopies and sigmoidoscopies
Easy Access to Our Personalized, Patient-Centered Surgical Department
When your doctor recommends outpatient surgery or a screening or diagnostic procedure, we encourage you to choose the highly personalized, patient-centered Surgery Department of Yadkin Valley Community Hospital.
Our experienced surgical nursing and support team works closely with surgeons and specialists to assure the best possible patient experience, along with the lowest possible risk of complications.
We are especially proud of our zero reported rate of hospital-acquired infections for outpatients who have had surgeries in our hospital.
We normally meet in advance with patients and the family member or friend who will be with them the day of the procedure, making sure we allow plenty of time to answer their questions and address any concerns they may have.
We explain exactly what they can expect the day of the procedure and tell them how to prepare and care for themselves at home afterwards. If their procedure requires general anesthesia, one of our nurse anesthetists will make sure they know any needed safety precautions to take before the procedure.
We schedule and manage our work flow with the patient’s comfort and convenience as our first priority. We make every effort to minimize wait times, normally getting started within minutes of the patient’s arrival. Once the procedure is finished, we check vital signs and make sure the patient is alert and feeling well before releasing them to return home.
A number of surgeons and specialists have standing reservations for using our surgical suite for weekly, bi-weekly or monthly clinics. Several have been using our surgical facilities and relying on our surgical nursing and support staff for more than a decade.
Currently, we offers regularly-scheduled clinics in--
- General surgery
Our hospital also offers easy, convenient access to the tests patients may need before their procedures in our Laboratory and Radiology departments.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
We are experienced and equipped to offer minimally invasive “band-aid” surgery.
Rather than performing the procedure directly through an open incision, the surgeon makes several small incisions and inserts surgical instruments and a laparoscope, a video camera which transmits live images of the procedure to a monitor.
Most patients heal much faster and experience far less pain after laparoscopic surgery than after a procedure using traditional surgical techniques.
