Same Day Surgery Program

The Ridehout Surgery Center, affiliated with Rideout Health and Rideout Memorial Hospital offer minimally invasive procedures in the operating room. Patients are able to return home shortly after surgery.

Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedics is the specialty that treats injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedists undergo extensive training: four to seven years of orthopedic residency in addition to eight years of college and medical school. This extensive training provides the necessary expertise to properly treat, with non-operative and operative methods, various conditions affecting the bones, joints, and muscles. 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. Specialized Post Anesthesia Care Unit registered nurses monitor 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'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.
