Sometimes you can carefully plan for your surgery. Other times you have a health crisis that lands you in the emergency room. No matter what type of surgery you face, you’re in good hands at California Pacific Medical Center.
General surgeons at CPMC are trained in a wide range of health needs and perform thousands of operations each year, either in the hospital or at an outpatient center. They are as good with a laparoscope as they are with a scalpel. U.S. News and World Report, the Joint Commission, the Leapfrog Group and the Aetna Institute of Quality are among the many groups that recognize CPMC for surgical care excellence.
Ambulatory (Outpatient) Surgery
Outpatient surgery allows you to get care close to home and without an overnight stay. Doctors and nurses at CPMC are experts in ambulatory surgery and care for you in a compassionate and respectful environment. We offer outpatient surgery at several locations throughout the San Francisco area.
After your doctor schedules your surgery, you’ll need to pre-register. Our registration team will help you prepare for your procedure and will answer any questions you may have. We also offer language interpreters as needed.
