Day of Your Procedure

Ambulatory Surgery Center of Killeen

At the Ambulatory Surgery Center of Killeen, our goal is to prepare every patient so that your procedure goes exactly as planned. Your procedure will go smoothly if you do your part by following all instructions as directed by your physician, complete your paperwork in advance, and ask questions about specific concerns. 

TIME: Please arrive at least thirty (30) minutes before your procedure time. We are located in Killeen at 2701 E. Stan Schlueter Loop. Be sure to bring your photo ID and health insurance card or payment. You can expect to be at our facility for approximately one (1) hour.

TRANSPORTATION: You need to bring a driver with you, and he or she MUST REMAIN at the surgery center during your procedure. You will not be allowed to drive yourself home after the procedure. No exceptions will be made to this rule without the doctor’s express written order.

PROCEDURE: When it is time for your procedure, you will be taken to a procedure room and prepped. The procedures our doctors perform do NOT require general anesthesia.

Instead, the area to be treated will be injected with a numbing medicine (local anesthetic) prior to the test or treatment. For certain procedures, patients may also be given a mild sedative. We have a certified registered nurse anesthesist who can administer conscious sedation for your procedure.

During the actual procedure, the doctor may use a type of X-ray called fluoroscopy to guide needle placement. Some procedures may also require contrast dye to be injected for a more precise image.

Prior to your procedure, your doctor will talk to you about what will take place and what to expect during and after the test or treatment. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask; the more you understand what is being done and why, the more comfortable you will be during the procedure.

At the Ambulatory Surgery Center of Killeen, we want to address your concerns so you can feel at ease with your procedure. If you have any questions about preparing for your procedure or what to do after the procedure, feel free to call us at (254) 415-7673.
