We are conveniently located on Main Street in Oconto Falls. When you get to the hospital there are people just a few steps from every entrance that will help you get to where you need to be.
At registration, you can find When you get into the surgery area you will meet our surgery staff: a dedicated group of professionals who could work at any hospital anywhere, yet they choose to drive in from Coleman, Pound, Peshtigo and right here in town to take care of their neighbors and friends. They know how to put you at ease and get you settled in.
When it comes to actual pain control, the anesthesia staff is where the rubber meets the road. As important as it is to be relaxed and comfortable going into the operating room, our anesthesia staff bring it all home. They are remarkable professionals who have years of training and experience from places like the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic. Their work starts when they talk to you about how we are going to manage your pain in the operating room and after surgery. This is the only group of anesthesia providers I have ever known who not only manage pain in the operating room, but also in the recovery room and on the nursing floor after surgery. Anesthesia can do wonderful things with nerve blocks, pain catheters, epidural injections and combinations of medications that are unique to their world of anesthesia. Not only are they well trained and talented, they care.
If you need to stay overnight, the nurses and certified nurse assistants on the nursing floor make sure that you are safe, your pain is controlled and that you are cared for.
I do my best, too, as a surgeon to minimize the pain of surgery. I have spent years learning minimally-invasive techniques and I have a commitment to handling tissue gently to minimize the trauma.
In short, pain is a part of the healing process after surgery. But at HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital we do our best – from start to finish – to understand your pain and individualize your treatment so that you feel better faster.
