Minimally Invasive and Same Day Surgery Options

Thanks to advances in technology many procedures which once required large incisions and long hospital stays can now often be done using minimally invasive or laparoscopic approaches which reduces the size of the incision, and generally results in less pain and scarring, faster recovery, and reduced incidence of post-surgical complication. Additionally, many of these surgeries can be completed on a same day basis so patients go home less than 24 hours after surgery.

Considerations When Choosing Surgery

With You Every Step of the Way

We understand the importance of knowledge and comfort in a patient’s surgical experience, which is why we place great emphasis on educating our patients both pre-operatively and post-operatively about what they can expect during the course of their surgical journey. Patients are educated about what to expect after surgery, how to properly care for themselves, and are provided with information regarding returning home.

Additionally, as part of Hackensack Meridian Health, Southern Ocean Medical Center provides access to Meridian rehabilitation facilities in Monmouth and Ocean counties, or in your home through Meridian At Home, as well as resources and support to help keep patients healthy after surgery for any illness or injury.
