Top-Quality, Same-Day Surgery in a State-of-the-Art Center
The Cape Surgery Center at Sarasota Memorial opened its doors in 1985 as the result of a generous gift in memory of Helen S. Cape.
Cape Surgery is a same-day surgical center; a medical facility where certain elective surgical procedures are performed and patients return home the same day. An estimated 50 to 60 percent of all surgery can be performed in same-day surgical facilities. Outpatient surgery is a planned, elective, non-emergency procedure that your doctor has recommended and you have chosen.
At the Cape Surgery Center, your surgery will be performed by medical specialists in a state-of-the-art facility located next door to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, the region’s premier medical center. Cape Surgery is an outpatient department of Sarasota Memorial.
Although ambulatory surgery is commonplace today, the Cape remains the community leader as a multi-specialty center for outpatient surgery. Common procedures include cataract surgery, hernia surgeries and laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, many types of biopsies, pediatric surgeries including tonsillectomies and the insertion of tubes in the ears, many types of ear surgery, gynecological procedures including Laparoscopic hysterectomies, cosmetic surgery, many orthopedic procedures, podiatry procedures and excision of skin cancers.
