In-office surgery refers to minor surgical interventions that may be completed by your doctor on an outpatient basis. These surgical procedures save patients time and money by not requiring hospitalization or anesthesia fees incurred at larger facilities. Dr. DelCharco holds the distinction of being the only OB/GYN in Marion County to have been inspected by the State of Florida and cleared to perform level-2 office surgery.
In-office surgery is performed by Dr. DelCharco and assisted by a team of healthcare providers such as a board-certified anesthesiologist. This offers our patients the convenience of having minor procedures completed in a comfortable and familiar environment without pain.
Before an in-office surgical procedure, you will be given express instructions by your doctor about how to prepare for a particular treatment. Depending on the procedure, you may be given a local anesthetic, general anesthesia, or simply instructed to take an over-the-counter pain reliever prior to your appointment to alleviate discomfort. Dr. DelCharco and his staff will perform the surgery and provide you with instructions about your recovery period. In most cases, patients are able to leave the office in a short time and resume normal activities in the days or weeks that follow.
