Rarely, it is necessary to perform certain procedures in local hospitals. When there is a complicated surgery anticipated or medical risk involved, we may choose to require hospitalization. Both Dr. Seider and Dr. Stevens are active staff members of the Memorial Regional Hospital group. Most procedures can be performed as an outpatient. Some more complicated procedures may require an overnight stay. We attempt to make this experience as relaxing as possible for you.

When our patients call for an initial consultation visit, we make every effort to try to schedule your appointment at a time most convenient for you. We will schedule all non-emergency patients for their consultation visit prior to their surgical visit. At this pre-surgical visit, we are able to assess your needs and recommend to you the treatment options in our relaxed office suites. Click here for our contact information.
