Recover in comfort at home
The greatest benefit of outpatient surgery is you get to return home the same day a surgical procedure is performed. This results in reduced stress and quicker recovery times because most people prefer to be in the comfort of their own home, rather than in the hospital while recuperating.
Because of these added benefits, HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital has made many minor and intermediate procedures available through our Outpatient Care Department. This includes urologic, gynecologic, ophthalmologic and ENT (ear, nose and throat) procedures, as well as many minimally invasive procedures.
