Arrowhead Hospital’s surgical services staff is recognized by our surgeons as extremely efficient and responsive. Our team thrives on challenge and works hard to meet the needs of the surgeons. Whether it is scheduling, equipment, quick turnover times, or simply exhibiting competence and a friendly attitude, the Arrowhead team consistently exceeds expectations.
Arrowhead’s surgical services department performs over 10,000 surgical cases each year in the following areas:
- General Surgery
- Peripheral Vascular
- Ear, Nose, Throat - Otolaryngology
- Limited Pediatrics
Post Anesthesia Recovery Unit
We provide post-operative patients with high quality, specialized nursing care for those who have received general, regional, and local anesthetics. We keep the patient and family informed, ensuring a safe discharge and appropriate after care
Surgical Services - Outpatient
We provide the patient and their family with pre- and post-surgical information, assessment and education, to make the transition home an easier one.
Endoscopy/Pain Management Services
We offer specialized equipment and a wide range of services, including gastroenterology, bronchoscopy, pain management and many other related procedures.
The Surgical Services Department at Arrowhead also includes the Endoscopy Department, which offers both in patient and outpatient procedures. Patients receive excellent care and ongoing procedural information throughout their stay, and patients are brought into a special recovery unit prior to discharge
Our Pain Management Department is also part of the Surgical Services Department, where physicians and staff work in conjunction with Surgical Services to help patients deal with pain and related issues that arise from surgical procedures.
Continuity of Patient Care
Arrowhead is one of the only hospitals in Arizona in which the surgical services unit is under the supervision and direction of the Director of Surgery. This direction provides a continuity of patient care because the surgical staff is integrally involved with the pre- and post-operative care.
Physicians, nursing staff, and patients all benefit from the ongoing communication between pre-operative, surgical, and post-operative staff. In addition, in the event of any patient problems or complications, they can be handled in a much more efficient manner than if an entirely different team was managing the unit.
Arrowhead Hospital currently houses twelve surgical suites and two cath labs and 20 post-operative beds.
The Surgical Services department also offers a pre-operative suite, a post-anesthesia care unit, and a stereotactic mammography suite.
With the current expansion, post-operative patient capacity is increasing from 17 beds to 20 beds.
Special equipment includes orthopedic navigational computer technology, lasers, lithotripsy, endovenous, and advanced endometrial ablation equipment, and a digital sterotactic unit. A neuro-microsope and specialty orthopedic tables are also available.
