Can multiple procedures be performed at the same time?

  • It is a relatively common practice for patients to undergo multiple procedures during one operation. Having procedures done simultaneously can decrease the expense of the operating room and anesthesia costs as well as the overall recovery time. The decision to have multiple procedures done depends on which procedures are being performed, the operating time, and your age/health. Dr. Guarnieri will discuss your personal options with you and help you decide whether or not it is appropriate to have multiple surgeries performed at the same time.
