Same-day Surgery (Outpatient)

Some of the surgeries performed at Walnut Hill Medical Center don't require an overnight hospital stay. Patients come in, have surgery, recover for a few hours and then return home by the end of the day. Our technology continues to make outpatient surgery an option for more disorders and illnesses every year. Patients requiring general anesthesia must bring someone over the age of 18 to drive them home after surgery.
