Middletown, NY (PRWEB) February 12, 2013
Hudson Valley Ambulatory Surgery (HVAS) has announced it will now offer procedures to provide the women of the Hudson Valley with a same day surgical option to receive care in a welcoming, state-of-the-art, medical facility close to home.
OB/GYN physician Alex M. Joanow, D.O., F.A.C.O.O.G., a founding partner of Horizon Family Medical Group, will head up the procedures.
Board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Joanow has served as a National Committee Member for the American College of Osteopathic Obstetricians & Gynecologists and has served on several local leadership boards.
“Women in all stages of life, for many reasons may require gynecological surgical procedures,” said Dr. Joanow. “We are excited for the opportunity to provide these procedures in a high-quality, comfortable environment that allows patients to recover at home.”
At Hudson Valley Ambulatory Surgery, Dr. Joanow will perform a variety of procedures including minimally-invasive surgeries for the removal of ovarian cysts, polyps and fibroids, laparoscopic tubal ligations and the placement of long-acting reversible contraceptives.
“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Joanow to our surgical staff,” said HVAS Governing Chairperson Virginia Feldman, MD, CASC. “We continuously evaluate the medical needs of the Hudson Valley and seek to add to or adjust our services as those needs evolve.”
Ambulatory surgery centers have become increasingly popular over the years as both patients and physicians seek more efficient ways to provide outpatient surgical procedures. Patients who undergo surgery at an ambulatory surgery center do not require admission to a hospital and are well enough to go home after the procedure.
