Daviess Community Hospital surgeons are highly-skilled generalists. They offer many of today’s latest surgical techniques and treatments for a wide variety of conditions, including: cancer, minimally invasive laparoscopic, hemorrhoids, hernia repair, breast surgery, endoscopy, vascular access surgery.

Outpatient Surgery (Same Day Surgery): Following a brief recovery period, you will go home on the same day as your surgery.

Inpatient Sugery with Overnight Stay: You will stay in the hospital overnight; however, you will not be in the hospital for more than 24 hours after check-in.

Inpatient Surgery with Multiple Night Stay: You will stay in the hospital for more than one day. Patients who stay multiple nights will typically require more skilled nursing care after their initial recovery period.
