The Theda Clark Surgery Center offers patient-friendly outpatient surgery. Its location on the first floor of the Renaissance Center gives Oshkosh-area patients easy access to a comfortable, family-focused surgical center. The vital difference of the Theda Clark Surgery Center can be summarized in one word: privacy.
Cosmetic plastic surgery patients from Green Bay, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac and Fox Cities communities can enter and leave the surgery center anonymously. For privacy and protection, the center features an enclosed garage and tinted windows throughout the building where you can see out, but no one can see in.
Patients also receive private weight checks and receive care in patient bays with closed glass doors (in addition to traditional curtains). These details are important to the patient experience and ensure privacy for all conversations inside and outside the patient’s room.
To ensure a comfortable recovery, patients at the Theda Clark Surgery Center have the ability to control their own beds instead of having to call the nurse to adjust the bed elevation. During their visit, patients remain comfortable in warm gowns and soft blankets.
The Theda Clark Surgery Center always utilizes an MD anesthesiologist from the Neenah Association of Hospital Anesthesiologists. Some ambulatory surgery centers use an RN to administer anesthesia. Trained nurses in most critical care settings often administer anesthesia safely to patients, who are intubated and ventilated. However, some practitioners have been lulled into a false sense of security, allowing the drugs’ good safety profile to influence their beliefs that anesthesia is safer than it really is. In untrained hands, anesthesia can be dangerous, even deadly. Administration to a non-ventilated patient by a practitioner, who is not trained in the use of drugs that can cause deep sedation is not safe, even if the drug is given under the direct supervision of the physician performing the procedure. It is difficult for a physician to provide adequate supervision of anesthesia if he is focused on the procedure itself. The board certified plastic surgeons of FVPS work only with MD anesthesiologists at TCSC to insure that their patients receive the best possible care.
