Specialized Outpatient Services

Convenient care that minimizes hospital time.

Expert care before and after your hospital procedure.

Because of our advanced diagnostic imaging capabilities and convenient location, many physicians refer patients to see us for outpatient evaluations and preparation for various surgical procedures that must be conducted in the hospital, as well as for follow-up examinations. Seeing us as an outpatient saves you many trips to the hospital – and leads to a shorter hospital stay. We provide expert diagnostics and pre-procedure and follow-up services for conditions such as uterine fibroids (non-cancerous growths of the uterus) and abdominal aortic aneurysms (potential dangerous bulges in the body’s primary artery, requiring constant monitoring).

Moving from hospital treatment to outpatient treatment.

In the past, many treatments were highly invasive, required a prolonged hospital stay and the patient often suffered through a lengthy recovery time. Today, our capabilities allow us to perform many of these same treatments as a minimally invasive outpatient treatment. This often eliminates the need for extended hospital stays and can reduce the recovery time length. Depending on the condition, certain procedures are handled at the hospital; in other cases, however, these conditions can now be handled completely on an outpatient basis – without a single hospital visit.
