Orem Community Hospital Surgical Services offers a variety of same-day surgery and inpatient surgical procedures. Our compassionate care team uses advanced surgical technology to help you heal appropriately and return to normal activity.
As a community hospital, we provide a high level of care and attention to each patient. We know surgery can be a scary experience so we focus on keeping you informed and involved in every stage of your care, and listen and respond to your questions and needs with compassion and respect.
While we perform a wide variety of surgical procedures, the following are the most common:
After surgery you will recover in a same-day surgery bed. Post-op nurses will monitor your pain, your breathing patterns, and if you will be able to get up and walk after surgery. These three criteria are the basis on which we can discharge you from the hospital. We work with you to keep your pain at a tolerable level, your breathing easy and unlabored, and make sure you will be able to walk without difficulty.
You will receive a packet with specific instructions from your surgeon, as well as instructions from the hospital when you are discharged to go home. The nurse will go over these instructions with you before you leave and answer any of your questions.
We need to have your stomach as empty and free from acid before surgery. The acid in your stomach can be especially dangerous while you are under anesthesia.
DO take your heart, blood pressure, asthma, or seizure medications with a sip of water on the morning of your procedure. DO NOT take any other medications unless directed by your physician.
We will work with you to take care of any need you may have. Interpretation services are free and available 24 hours a day.
