Outpatient procedures are performed by our local physicians and/or our specialty physicians.  The average length of stay from admission to dismissal is 3-4 hours. Recovery care after the surgical procedure is completed will be done in the post anesthesia recovery unit; however, many times this is done in the patient room where family members may be with the patient.

Whether you are an outpatient or admitted to Gonzales Healthcare Systems, trust our surgical team to begin your healing with improved outcomes.
