McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital


At McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital, we offer both inpatient and outpatient surgical services.

Inpatient surgery

Area surgeons perform a wide range of procedures in our four-room surgical suite. In addition, the surgical staff is ready to respond whenever emergency surgery is required.

Outpatient and same-day surgery

Many minor surgical procedures our patients require are handled on an outpatient basis for their convenience.

Same-day surgery (SDS) refers to any surgical procedure for which a patient is admitted, has surgery and is dismissed within the same day. Preadmission testing is usually conducted ahead of time and includes such things as lab tests or x-rays requested by the attending physician. The patient discusses pending surgical procedures with the preadmission testing nurse and anesthesiologist.

Common SDS procedures include:

  • Laparascopic procedures such as gallbladder, hernia repair and appendectomy.
  • Colonoscopy.
  • Orthopedic surgery.
  • Urological surgery.
  • Gynecological surgery.
  • Carpal tunnel surgery.
  • Ear surgery.
  • Breast biopsies.
  • Podiatric surgeries.
  • Minor plastic surgeries.
  • Other types of minor surgeries.

In the postoperative recovery unit, patients are closely monitored and assisted.
