We provide a wide scope of surgical services, including inpatient, outpatient, day surgery and minimally invasive procedures, at our hospitals in Framingham and Natick. In our operating rooms, MetroWest surgeons perform minor and major procedures on patients who suffer from a variety of medical conditions. The procedures we perform require sophisticated skill and state-of-the-art technology.
In addition to our surgical specialties, we offer a number of special programs:
Through our autotransfusion program patients can donate their own blood for use during their surgical procedure. Our Perioperative Music Therapy Program uses music to help reduce stress, control anxiety and pain, and enhance the healing process. Patients interested in this program can bring tapes or CDs and a headset to listen to music during and after their procedure, when appropriate. MetroWest's LAR (Local Ambulatory Room) and day surgery programs allow patients to have minor surgical procedures and return home the same day. Through our pain management program, patients work with nurses and doctors before and after their procedure to prevent or relieve pain.
Prior to your procedure at MetroWest, you will visit our Pre-Admission Testing clinic.
During your visit, you will pre-register with the hospital, be assessed by a nurse, receive educational information relevant to your procedure, interview with an anesthesiologist, and have any tests your doctor orders (EKG, X-rays, blood tests, etc.). In addition, you will receive postoperative discharge instructions to aid in your recovery, as well as information about your rights as a patient under Massachusetts law to make decisions about your medical care.
Please set aside two hours for your Pre-Admission Testing visit. We can be reached:
Framingham at (508) 383-1280
