Some of the specialties include: Hand Surgery, Foot & Ankle Surgery, Joint Replacement, Spine Surgery, Sports Medicine, Shoulder & Elbow Surgery.

After Surgery Services

Immediately after surgery, patients may be brought to the Recovery Room or Day Surgery Room, depending on the stage of recovery. The Post Anesthesia Care unit is staffed with nurses trained in post anesthesia care. The Post Anesthesia Care nurse monitors the patients when they wake up from anesthesia to ensure they are as comfortable as possible. The length of time patients stay after surgery depends on the procedure, the anesthesia used, and the patient's response to both.


Rideout Health's anesthesia team, provide general, spinal and epidural anesthesia, as well as nerve blocks, and conscious sedation during endoscopy. In some cases, you may request a specific provider.
