While our surgical teams perform dozens of procedures every day at FMH, we recognize that to our patients and their families, no surgery is ever "routine." That's why we have put together a team of experienced, highly credentialed medical professionals to guide you every step of the way. From scheduling to discharge, we have a well-organized set of procedures in place to help make everything go as smoothly as possible.
With improved technology, new surgical techniques and advances in pain management, many patients are able to have their tests, procedures and surgeries done on an outpatient basis. As a patient on the FMH Same Day Surgery Unit, you will be in and out of the hospital within 24 hours-and able to sleep in your own bed that night!
Perhaps the greatest advance in general surgery over the past decade has been the development of minimally-invasive techniques to treat even the most complex conditions. The FMH surgical team has a wealth of experience in using these advanced techniques to make surgery and recovery easier on you, and your family. Requiring smaller incisions and less recovery time, these new methods can also minimize infections and other complications-and that means you'll be back on your feet and feeling like yourself again faster.
We are proud of the fact that Frederick Memorial Hospital's quality of surgical care is consistently rated highly in independent surveys and studies of our patients, and our peers. After rigorous review, several of our programs have earned Centers of Excellence designations, including the FMH Joint Works.
When you select FMH for your surgical procedure, you can be assured that you are in excellent hands, and that we will take superb care of you. You can relax, knowing that we will be with you every step of the way--from scheduling, to admissions, to recovery, to discharge and beyond. We'll do everything we can to make the surgical experience as comfortable as possible for you and your family.
