Same-Day Surgery Unit

As less invasive surgical techniques advance, the number of outpatient surgeries continues to grow.

The same-day surgery staff includes highly skilled, specialty-trained critical care nurses and aides. They work closely with your surgeon and anesthesia team.

We perform all same-day surgeries in the OR at UPMC Jameson.

Services we provide include:

  • Pre-and post-op care for invasive medical imaging procedures.
  • Pre-and post-op care for heart catheterizations and angioplasties.
  • Blood transfusions and IV infusions.

Endoscopy

Endoscopy is used to perform studies and diagnose gastrointestinal disorders by looking inside the body with a scope. The general surgeons at UPMC Jameson offer upper and lower GI endoscopies to help diagnose:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Ulcers
  • Abnormal growths
  • Cancer and precancerous conditions
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Hiatal hernia

Robotic Surgery

We now have minimally invasive robotic surgery with the da Vinci® System at UPMC Jameson.

The da Vinci robot translates a surgeon’s hand movements into smaller, more precise movements.

During the procedure, the surgeon:

  • Inserts tiny surgical tools through a small cut.
  • Uses a high-powered camera to move the robot's arms.
  • Views the movements through a magnified 3D high-def screen.

Since surgeons only need to make small cuts, the benefits of robotic surgery may include less pain and scarring.

Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU)

Right after surgery, we'll move you to the PACU and check on you often.

All PACU staff members have training in:

  • Critical care nursing
  • Advanced cardiac life support (ACLS)
  • Pediatric advanced life support (PALS)

Where you'll go after the PACU

  • For outpatient surgery: you'll return to the same-day surgery unit before going home.
  • For inpatient surgery, or same-day-surgery patients who need to stay in the hospital: we'll take you to your room.
