Surgeons at Wellmont Health System facilities stand ready to help when they are needed most. Whether a patient requires an outpatient procedure or a lengthy, complex operation, Wellmont's board-certified surgeons, anesthesiologists and specially trained nursing and support staff members provide expert surgical care.
Wellmont's trained, professional medical staff members take each patient's safety personally. Before surgery, patients shouldn't be surprised when they are asked to confirm their name and the procedure they are getting. It’s all part of Wellmont's ongoing efforts to keep patients safe.
While all surgical procedures are different, there is some standard information patients should know. The information in this section discusses many general processes and procedures that should be helpful for Wellmont surgery patients.
For answers to questions about a particular type of surgery or more general surgical information, please call the Wellmont Nurse Connection at 1-877-230-NURSE.
