Thankfully, our current COVID-19 surge seems to not lead to increased hospitalizations. The number of patients being admitted to hospitals for COVID-19 is the lowest in 2 years.
Nonetheless, we continue to remain committed to the safety of our patients and our frontline workers.
We remain cautiously optimistic, and are following all guidelines and best practices.
COVID-19 & Your Surgery
There are currently no restrictions on elective surgeries.
In the immediate COVID-19 aftermath, surgical considerations include:
- Postponing surgery if you suspect you might have had a recent COVID-19 infection.
- Use of sterile location PPE in-hospital.
- Use of surgical air-scrubbers (Aerobiotix).
