Day Surgery

The Staff of the Surgical Services program of the Brant Community Healthcare System, Brantford General site are committed to providing our patients with quality care, no matter how brief their stay.

Most scheduled surgery is performed as Day Surgery. When you have a Day Surgery operation, you will benefit from medical excellence, provided in a friendly, patient-centered environment, and you also have the special advantage of being able to go home the same day.

Pre-op Clinic

A few days before your surgery, you will be asked to attend the Pre-op Clinic. During this visit you will be asked important questions about your medical history and current health status. All required examinations, x-rays and tests would be completed during this time. Most importantly, you will be provided the opportunity to ask any important questions that you might have about your surgery, and to obtain pre-operative instructions to make sure that you are prepared for your surgery and recovery.

Day surgery services offered at the Brantford General include:

  • Orthopaedics
  • General Surgery
  • Urology
  • Vascular
  • ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat)
  • Gynecology

Members of the health care team have coordinated the development of a plan of care based on the particular and special needs for each individual patient. To ensure this combination of high quality care and convenience, we also make sure that you have all the information that you will need for a comfortable recuperation at home.
