Sibley Surgical Facilities

Surgery at Sibley Memorial Hospital is performed at the Ambulatory Surgery Center (for outpatient procedures) and the main operating room facility (particularly for procedures requiring an overnight stay). Regardless of the facility, our professional staff will assist you in preparing for surgery and offer support during your surgical experience. All of our surgeons have met Sibley’s high credentialing standards, and our registered nurses are specially trained to offer quality care. Every effort will be made to make your stay at Sibley as pleasant as possible.

Sibley’s operating rooms are the most advanced in the area. All the rooms feature high-definition monitors for laparoscopic surgery, so that surgeons can view anatomic detail at a level that was never before possible. The monitors also allow X-ray images to be viewed side by side with surgical images so that the operation can be carried out with absolute precision.

About the Sibley Ambulatory Surgery Center

Sibley’s Ambulatory Surgery Center is primarily for outpatient surgery, including general, orthopaedic and cosmetic procedures. Highlights of the center include:

  • A self-contained area with its own registration process, pre- and post-op and discharge
  • Separate waiting area for family, significant others and friends
  • Separate entrance for patients who desire privacy
  • Proximity to the main hospital and main OR, should any higher level of care become necessary

If you have questions or would like further information on the Sibley Ambulatory Surgery Center, call 202-364-7632.

The Sibley Approach to Surgery

Privacy and Professionalism

Our patients experience a streamlined admission and discharge process in both the main operating room and in the Sibley Ambulatory Surgery Center. Both of these surgical areas are located at one of the most respected acute care hospitals in the area and offer the assurance of medical excellence and access to many of the resources of Sibley Hospital.

Care and Support

We are committed to providing coordinated, comprehensive support. It begins with consultation and detailed surgery preparation. Then it continues through all stages of recovery to ensure a smooth transition to your daily life. Potomac Home Support, a Sibley affiliate, can provide additional support before and after surgery. Escorting you to and from surgery and providing in-home follow-up care are a few of the services that can be arranged. It is the patient’s responsibility to arrange for these services, if desired or needed, prior to their surgery.

Nurses Who Understand

“Nursing care is a critical component to any successful surgery. I entrust the nurses at Sibley with the care of my patients.”
Dr. David Kung

Our surgical nurses work closely with our surgeons and have a comprehensive understanding of the issues involved in surgery, particularly in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. They bring years of experience and specialized training to their work. Compassion and care is a hallmark of all they do. With our high nurse-to-patient ratio, you receive personal attention from pre-op to surgery through the discharge process.

The surgeons who choose to practice at Sibley are among the most respected in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area.

Overnight Stay Option

One of the most unique features of our center is the option to spend the night. In a quiet private room, you can receive personalized post-operative care by a specialized registered nurse.
