In addition to Gastrointestinal Surgery, Sterling Surgical Center specializes in performing several important gastrointestinal diagnostic tests, such as colonoscopies, EGDs, and flexible sigmoidoscopies.
Independent Health Patients
We are committed to offering you the highest level of care at the Sterling Surgical Center. We offer anesthesia (deep sedation) administered by Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist’s (CRNA’s) for your procedure. Certain patients with Independent Health may not qualify for deep sedation. You will be evaluated by your physician to determine what level of sedation we think will be covered by your insurance company. Should you decide to choose deep sedation, even if IHA feels it is not necessary, we will discuss your options after you have been evaluated by your physician.
Scheduling Your Procedure
Please plan to be with us from 2-4 hours on the day of your procedure. Your physician's office has scheduled your procedure. The office staff will let you know if pre-procedural testing is required prior to your scheduled procedure.
Our transportation policy is for your safety. A patient who requires sedation for a procedure will not be allowed to drive themselves home. You must arrange for a responsible adult to drive you to and from the Center.
