The Medical Staff of Lake Wales Medical Centers perform a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures using the latest technology and minimally invasive techniques. Some surgeries that utilize laparoscopic or other technologies allow you to have surgery and return home the same day. These procedures are not only cost-effective and convenient, but minimally invasive so recovery time is reduced.Some of the surgeries and/or procedures offered through LWMC's Ambulatory Surgery Unit and Surgery Department include:
- General and Laparoscopic
- Pain Management
Important Tips to Remember in Preparation of Your Surgery/Procedure
- Most importantly, follow your physician's instructions in preparation for your surgery/procedure. This will allow you to avoid unnecessary delays and or cancellations.
- Be prepared for a call from a Lake Wales Medical Centers pre-surgery screener. This person will attempt to contact you prior to surgery to review your physician instructions and required advance testing such as lab work or x-rays.
- Do not bring any items of value with you. Those important and valuable items should be left at home.
- Remember to prepare for a ride home prior to arriving the day of your surgery. We require that a responsible adult pick you up at the hospital and drive you home.
