Outpatient Surgery Center

When you have surgery, the more you know about what to expect, the more comfortable you’re likely to be. That can mean a speedier recovery too. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact your surgeon or the staff at Deaconess.

The physicians and staff of the Outpatient Surgery Center perform one-day procedures, making surgery more economical and allowing patients to recover in the comfort of their own home. Treatment and care is provided to more that 4,000 patients each year for a wide variety of procedures such as:

  • cataracts
  • gynecological and endoscopic procedures
  • hernias
  • tonsillectomies

Deaconess Hospital was the first Oklahoma City hospital to open an outpatient surgery center in 1974.

Surgery Center patients should use the patient entrance. Convenient parking is available. Go to the Deaconess Hospital Map for a better picture of our location.

Here’s the process you can expect as a patient of the Surgical Care Unit: 

  • A pre-registration clerk will call you several days ahead of time for admission information. This will make your admission for outpatient surgeries go much smoother.
  • On the day of outpatient surgery, you should check in at the surgical care unit two hours before surgery unless you’ve been given a different time.
  • All patients are assessed by a registered nurse before surgery. You and your family will participate in developing your plan of care following your surgery.
  • Your anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist will explain to you the type of anesthesia you will receive. We will review your medical history, as well as answer any questions you might have about the type of anesthetic used.
  • Your family can be with you until it is time for surgery. One of the staff will show your family where to wait, so the surgeon may visit with them following surgery
  • Your surgeon will decide when you’re ready to go home. You and your family will be given instructions from your surgeon as well as written discharge instructions from our hospital.

Our goal is for you to have a positive experience while at Deaconess. Our mission is to provide excellent nursing care, teaching and instructions that will prepare you for surgery and the recovery period.
