Dr. Hyman’s Upper East Side office is one of the largest of its kind in Manhattan (5,000 sq feet) and includes a private ambulatory surgery center as well as an overnight recovery facility for four patients at a time if needed. Our practice uses state-of-the-art technology to help ensure your safety and comfort while you’re with us.
Because the surgery center is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), you can be confident that our facility has been inspected and meets all of their standards, including:
- Compliance with all local, state, and federal regulations for the protection of patients and staff;
- Adherence to federal laws and regulations that affect our practice, including HIPAA, OSHA blood-borne pathogens standards, and the Americans with Disabilities Act;
- Utilization of advanced monitoring devices and instruments during surgery and recovery for optimal patient safety.
The overnight recovery facility is available when a procedure makes it necessary or convenient for the patient to stay overnight. When a patient stays overnight, a registered nurse, as well as an assistant, will be present with the patient at all times.
Feel free to contact us with questions about our facility, or just schedule a consultation so you can come in and see it for yourself.
