Preparing for Outpatient Surgery

Tips for Preparation

Treatment for Barrett's Esophagus

Some of the most common outpatient procedures we perform include:

  • Ear, Nose & Throat

  • Colonoscopy

  • Gastroscopy

  • Hernia Repair

  • Knee Arthroscopy (orthopedic)

  • Shoulder Arthroscopy (orthopedic)

  • Balloon Kyphoplasty (orthopedic)

  • Ophthalmology

  • Pain Management

In fact, St. Joseph's is one of the only hospitals in the metro-east to offer balloon kyphoplasty, a minimally invasive treatment for repairing spinal and compression fractures.

State-of-the-art technology


We've also recently invested in new state-of-the-art technology to provide some of the most advanced, minimally invasive surgeries available today.

Don't think you have to travel to a larger facility in the city for great care. You can receive the same care - if not better - at HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital in Highland. For more information on outpatient surgical procedures, please call 618-651-2770.

Outpatient Surgical hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 am - 3:30 pm for scheduled procedures and 24-hour coverage for medical emergencies.
