South Nassau Communities Hospital

  • 12-room Operating Suite
  • 100+ BE/BC Surgeons
  • 6,000+ Procedures Performed Annually

The Department is staffed by more than 100 BE/BC surgeons. There is an advanced design, 12-room operating suite where more than 6,000 procedures are performed annually, along with a busy ambulatory surgery unit. During the first year, one month is spent on the surgical team: assisting at surgery, rounding on patients with the chief surgical resident and participating in the initial evaluation and management of trauma and acute surgical cases in the Emergency Room. Residents also have the opportunity to learn and practice intubations.

During the third year, one month is spent on outpatient surgery and in the Wound Care Center, under the supervision of a staff general surgeon. The resident scrubs on the surgeon's scheduled cases and accompanies the surgeon to office hours. There, the resident gains valuable experience in minor surgical techniques and evaluation of outpatient surgical problems.
