Surgery Program

The Surgery program at Bluewater Health is made up of a multi-disciplinary team of healthcare providers, who provide care and treatment to patients with an acute surgical condition.

From diagnosis to discharge the surgery team is focused on patient and family-centered care, and our goal is to make your visit to our facility as pleasant as possible. To help us reach this goal, please read the information provided to you and carefully follow instructions.

Your surgery will be booked as an inpatient or outpatient procedure. Please be advised that under some conditions your surgery or procedure may be delayed or rescheduled. If your surgery or procedure is done on an outpatient basis and requires sedation you must have someone to accompany you home from the hospital or your surgery or procedure may be cancelled.

As an outpatient, you may have surgery and after a recovery period in the hospital, return home to complete your recovery in the convenience of your home on the same day. Endoscopy and cystoscopy procedures are completed on an outpatient basis. Following the procedure you will have time to recover prior to discharge from the hospital. If your procedure requires, you will be admitted to the hospital after surgery or procedure.

Our highly skilled team uses state-of-the-art equipment to provide you with the excellent medical care and attention you deserve. Since we are concerned with your physical and emotional well-being, we make every attempt to keep you comfortable and at ease.

If at any time you have questions, please speak to your healthcare provider.
