The Surgery Department at Meadville Medical Center (MMC) utilizes the latest in surgical equipment and techniques in providing both inpatient and outpatient care. The surgical team consists of specially trained nurses and anesthetists, general and specialty surgeons and anesthesiologists.
The majority of surgeries are done on an outpatient basis, and outpatient surgery remains a convenient, cost-saving alternative to hospital admission for patients undergoing certain procedures. These patients are provided with quality care and safety, plus the availability of complete hospital facilities and services if needed. In recent years the trend is minimally invasive surgery, which helps patients recover much faster, suffer less pain and quickly return to work.
