Welcome to Maui Health's same-day procedure services. We hope to make your short stay in our Ambulatory Care Services Department as pleasant as possible.
No matter what procedure you'll be having here, our skilled team of surgical professionals will provide you with compassionate, expert care.
Some of the more common short-stay surgical procedures we perform include:
- General surgery.
- Hand surgery.
- Heart, brain and vascular procedures.
- Interventional radiology procedures.
- Orthopedic procedures.
- OB-GYN procedures.
- Pediatric dentistry.
Our team will be in touch with you a few times before the procedure. We'll call you after your procedure is scheduled to ask you about your health and medications and to go over pre-op instructions. We'll also call you the day before the procedure to reconfirm the procedure and check-in time and answer any last-minute questions. If you haven't been contacted by 3 p.m. the day before your procedure, call us at 808.242.2424.
On the day of your procedure, you'll be asked to arrive two hours early. We offer complimentary valet parking at our main lobby entrance 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Bring your identification and insurance information and be prepared to pay co-pays or deductibles before your procedure. Leave valuables and jewelry at home.
Each same-day procedure patient gets his or her own private preoperative bay. You are encouraged to bring your family to stay with you for support prior to your procedure. A nurse's aide will help you get into your gown and check your vital signs. If your procedure requires an anesthesiologist, he or she will come visit you in your bay. Your doctor will also visit you prior to your procedure. This is a good time to ask any last-minute questions.
During your procedure, family and support people can wait in our large waiting area. The waiting area has a status board where your loved ones can follow your progress. After your procedure, our team will update the person you've designated.
After your procedure, you may be transferred to the post-anesthesia care unit for observation. The length of time you'll spend in this area depends on the type of anesthesia you receive.
When you are ready to go home, your nurse will give you discharge instructions. These instructions will include activity restrictions, diet, medications, wound care and follow-up with your provider.
