    Superior Quality and Outstanding
    Care With Faster Recovery

    Many surgical procedures that used to require long hospital stays and recovery periods can now be done on an outpatient basis with shorter, less painful recovery times. New technologies and techniques have changed the face of surgery.

    “Laparoscopy and other less invasive techniques make it possible to do many diagnostic and surgical procedures more quickly, easily and safely than ever before,” says Christopher Hudlin, M.D., a Sutter Gould Medical Foundation surgeon based in Stockton. Thanks to these new procedures, “many surgery patients go home the same day, and most of them can return to their normal activities within a few days.”

    Sutter Health is on the leading edge of these changes. Our state-of-the-art outpatient surgical centers in Modesto, Stockton and Tracy use the latest surgical equipment and advanced technology. These centers treat thousands of patients and are certified by either the Joint Commission or the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care — health care’s coveted seals of approval for a high level of quality care and patient safety.

    Our modern facilities feature beautiful, comfortable surroundings for patients and their loved ones, and our expert medical staffs consistently receive high marks for patient care and satisfaction.

    All five centers offer surgical services in these areas: gynecology, orthopedics, plastic surgery, urology, and ear, nose and throat. Other specialties vary by center and include vascular procedures, pain management and ophthalmology.

    Sutter Health’s outpatient surgery facilities feature the most up-to-date technology and equipment, and our staff provides attentive, personal service.
