Surgical Services

The surgical suite at Mayo Regional Hospital is open for scheduled surgery nine hours a day, four days per week. (Monday-Thursday) Surgeons,  Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, Registered Nurses and Certified Scrub Technologists are available on an on-call basis for emergency surgery 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.

The department is conveniently located on the first floor at Mayo Regional and includes three fully equipped operating rooms, a minor procedure room and an adjacent postoperative ambulatory surgery unit (ASU) Our ambulatory surgery unit offers spacious pre-operative patient areas with a friendly centralized nursing station for quality care and monitoring. Many of our surgeries do not require an overnight stay but we are fully staffed with a medical/surgical floor for additional nursing care and recovery. We have a team of hospital-based physicians (hospitalists) that provide 24/7 physician coverage.

The surgical department provides general, orthopedic, ophthalmologic, oncologic, oral, gynecologic, obstetric, otolaryngologic (ear, nose, & throat) and endoscopic services. All physicians and allied health professionals providing surgical care at Mayo Regional Hospital have appropriate credentials and clinical privileges delineated by the Medical Staff and approved by the Board of Directors.

Care is provided for all age groups, with evaluation of each patient on an individual basis. The surgeon, operating room nurses, and allied health professionals each have a role in preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative assessment and care of each patient, as well as appropriate teaching. When length of stay is minimal (daycare), a serious attempt is made to contact each patient the day following surgery for follow-up.
