For many people, surgery is a daunting prospect. At MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital, our surgical specialists share a common goal: creating a patient experience dedicated to superior quality, safety, satisfaction and the best possible outcomes.
Over the years, advancements in medicine, modernization of equipment and increasingly sophisticated surgical services have revolutionized care at MedStar Health's hospitals. We offer a variety of services designed to facilitate rapid recovery from surgery. We strive to offer advanced care in a comfortable environment.
We're with you through it all
Our board-certified surgeons and experienced surgical teams use both traditional and minimally invasive approaches to treat disease or injury. Our clinicians work with patients before surgery to prepare them for surgery physically, as well as to decrease anxiety by explaining what to expect. Our surgeons and staff take time to answer patients' questions about the procedure, the expected recovery process, and the long-term outcome.
After surgery, we have a range of services designed to speed healing and get patients back to their lives. From sub-acute care to inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation, and from home health services to medical equipment, we take care of the details so that you can stay focused on making a quick recovery.
Many surgical procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. Our ambulatory surgery center offers patients the option of going home the same day that a surgery has been performed. Following your procedure, you will be transferred to a recovery area where specially trained nurses will do their best to make the remainder of your stay comfortable.
