All procedures done at the Billings Clinic Surgery Center will be outpatient - where patients go home the same day they have surgery, allowing them to recover in the comfort of their home.
Physicians from several specialty areas will perform outpatient surgical procedures in the Surgery Center, including:
- orthopedics and sports medicine
- general surgery
- ear, nose and throat
The Surgery Center was designed with quality care, safety and the patient experience at its core. Separate entrances for patient arrival and exit help provide smooth transition through each stage of a patient’s care, including the admission, pre-op, operating, recovery and departure processes.
