About Outpatient Surgery
Norwalk Hospital’s board-certified surgeons perform many advanced surgical procedures on an outpatient basis (also called ambulatory surgery or same-day surgery). We do outpatient surgery at two locations: the main hospital, 5th Floor, McGraw Center, and at our Ambulatory Surgery Center, 40 Cross Street in Norwalk.
With today’s innovative medical technologies and techniques, including minimally invasive surgery, many complex surgeries can be done with smaller incisions, resulting in less bleeding, fewer complications and faster healing. Another benefit is that you can recover safely and more comfortably at home.
Your surgeon will discuss your options and make arrangements to schedule your outpatient surgery. Please take care to follow all pre- and post-operative care instructions faithfully.
