Promoting A Culture of Patient Safety

The culture of patient safety is strong at Specialty Surgical Center in Sparta, New Jersey, and we continue to work diligently at improving our already strong program. There are several onsite and national programs that Specialty Surgical Center is involved in that set them above other surgical centers in the aspect of patient safety.

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) basic certification course continues to be completed by staff members, and currently, all managers and over 75% of the staff have completed the course and have started safety improvement projects. The IHI program works with organizations to “make care continually safer by reducing harm and preventable mortality.” Staff who take the IHI course learn systems to increase safety across the whole system, anticipate where risks could arise and address these risks before they become a threat to patient safety.

Specialty Surgical Center is also involved with the Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute’s National CUSP Program and has implemented several internal programs to further promote and ensure patient safety. Daily morning huddles in preoperative and surgical areas are performed to discuss issues and risk factors. Each surgical case is now debriefed, seeking ways to improve the level of performance and satisfaction.

One of the aspects the Specialty Surgical Center team is most proud of is that preparedness and teamwork have increased immensely since the implementation of these programs.

Chiropractic Care at Specialty Surgical Center

At Specialty Surgical Center in Sparta, New Jersey, chiropractic care is available for patients with chronic pain conditions including back pain, headaches, neck pain and arthritis pain.

Depending on your condition, chiropractic therapies may be supplemented with pain management therapies. Conditions like sciatica, spinal stenosis, and herniated discs often see improvement with a combined treatment program of interventional pain management and chiropractic care.

Spinal manipulation is sometimes called spinal manipulative therapy and is used to restore or enhance the function of the spine. Spinal manipulation has shown to be beneficial for a variety of pain conditions, including migraine, back pain, neck pain, and neck-related headaches.

Applied kinesiology is the study of how the body moves – specifically, how muscles are related with the internal organs. Through applied kinesiology, muscle weakness will be addressed for their links to nerve damage, reduced blood supply, or other internal issues.

Upper cervical specific chiropractic care addresses issues including dizziness and vertigo, as the spine plays a definite role in the balance and equilibrium of the body. The upper joints of the neck are also involved in coordinating body, hand, and eye movements, and so if there are issues with the cervical joints of the neck, there can be other issues with the rest of the body.

In addition to these chiropractic services, there are also many others that are provided to patients of Specialty Surgical Center of Sparta, New Jersey. For more information on how chiropractic care can help you, make an appointment at Specialty Surgical Center by calling 973-940-3166

Orthopedic Surgery at Specialty Surgical Center

Orthopedic surgery is the specialty concerning the musculoskeletal system. At Specialty Surgical Center in Sparta, New Jersey, orthopedic procedures constitute the bulk of surgeries performed, and, with about 3,000 procedures per year, arthroscopic knee surgery is the most common procedure.

At Specialty Surgical Center, we provide both knee and shoulder surgeries arthroscopically, a technique that is performed through small incisions and utilizes a camera that relays images onto a larger screen where the surgeon can get a better view of the internal structures of the body. Arthroscopic surgeries have many benefits over traditional open surgeries in that they require shorter surgery times, minimize blood loss, and reduce recovery time following the procedure.

Back and spine surgeries also require the expertise of an orthopedic surgeon, and may include minimally invasive spinal fusions or discectomy. At Specialty Surgical Center, all procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, meaning they are minimally invasive and patients are able to return home the same day – including back and spine surgeries.

Also available at Specialty Surgical Center is minimally invasive hip replacement surgery that is also performed on an outpatient basis. This procedure has many benefits over the traditional, open hip replacement surgery in that there is less muscle damage, minimized blood loss, patients are able to return home the same day, and the recovery time is significantly reduced. There are other joint replacement surgeries that are performed at Specialty Surgical Center that are also minimally invasive and outpatient.

At Specialty Surgical Center, patients get the advantage of cutting-edge medical technology and procedures combined with a medical team that cares about their patients and makes their safety and comfort a priority.

Specialty Surgical Center is located in Sparta, New Jersey and our staff consists of board certified surgeons and anesthesiologists performing procedures in Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Spinal Care, Podiatry, Urology, Pain Management, ENT, Hand Surgery, Lithotripsy, Brachytherapy, GYN and Laser Surgery.

Interventional Pain Management at Specialty Surgical Center

Chronic pain affects over 100 million Americans and can be extremely difficult to live with. At Specialty Surgical Center in Sparta, New Jersey, pain management specialists provide outpatient procedures for chronic pain sufferers to help them live more functional, higher quality lives.

Chronic pain is considered any pain condition where the pain symptoms have lasted three months or more. This may include arthritis, migraines, fibromyalgia, back pain, neck pain, neuropathy conditions, and any other condition where pain has lasted beyond three months. Chronic pain can be difficult to manage, but the use of interventional pain management techniques can reduce symptoms.

Interventional pain management includes procedures that are minimally invasive and performed on an outpatient basis. Injections and nerve blocks are among the most common interventional pain management procedures performed at Specialty Surgical Center.

Injections consist of transforaminal injections and corticosteroid injections, both of which are administered at the site of pain. These injections are intended to both quickly relieve pain with a local anesthetic, and then continue with their pain relieving properties through the use of a long acting steroid.

Nerve blocks, including facet joint blocks, medial branch blocks, and sympathetic nerve blocks, effectively interrupt the flow of pain signals from the area of nerve damage to the brain. This interruption will cause the patient to feel significantly less if any pain. Both injections and nerve blocks are intended to last for several months and can be repeated if the patient suffers recurring pain.

Specialty Surgical Center is located in Sparta, New Jersey and our staff consists of board certified surgeons and anesthesiologists performing procedures in Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Spinal Care, Podiatry, Urology, Pain Management, ENT, Hand Surgery, Lithotripsy, Brachytherapy, GYN and Laser Surgery.
