Frankfort Regional Medical Center is recognized for the quality healthcare provided to the individuals and families in our communities. Over 4,000 procedures are completed in our hospital every year. Highly skilled and experienced surgeons, nurses and other specially trained staff encompass the Surgery Center at Frankfort Regional. It is our goal to meet the needs of the surrounding region with compassion and excellence.
The operating area has six operating rooms and a cysto suite. The pre-op area has a dedicated pre-admissions testing nurse and a dedicated nursing staff for outpatients. The 10-bed Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) is staffed with professionals trained in Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
At the Surgery Center, patients drive up to a dedicated entrance, are admitted, prepped for surgery, undergo their procedure, recover and are discharged -- all from a single area. In addition to the traditional outpatient surgeries performed by general surgeons, our physicians also perform a number of minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures.

Preparing for Surgery
Millions of Americans will undergo surgery each year. It is important for patients to be informed about the surgery being recommended. All surgeries have risks and benefits which you should familiarize yourself with before deciding whether the procedure is right for you. It is important to remember that a well-informed patient tends to be more satisfied with the outcome or results of a procedure than a patient who has been less actively involved in their plan of treatment.
