Elective Surgery

We’re taking extra care so that you don’t need to delay your surgery

We have built a safety plan designed to evaluate each patient’s case independently as we determine the need for certain safety measures, including COVID-19 testing. All patients will be tested for active infection and caregivers will take appropriate measures consistent with CDC guidelines.
