Comprehensive Surgical Expertise at Northside Hospital 

Across every clinical specialty, Northside Hospital offers expert surgical services for any need, anchored by dozens of locations for convenient hospital-based or outpatient surgery scheduling. Many of our board-certified and fellowship-trained surgeons are nationally recognized as pioneers in performing advanced surgical techniques, including minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery and specialized robotic surgery. 

COVID-19 Screening Process for Patients Scheduled for Surgery


Effective July 1, 2022, Northside Hospital Surgical Services departments will move to a screening-based strategy for COVID-19 symptoms for patients undergoing surgical procedures. This means that you will be assessed for current symptoms of COVID-19, assessed for exposure to someone with COVID-19, and assessed for a history of COVID-19 within the past 90 days.

If you experience symptoms of COVID-19 or find out that you were exposed to someone with COVID-19 within seven days before your surgery, call the COVID-19 Symptom Hotline at 404-497-8555 .

You will be prompted to select the number for the facility where your surgery is scheduled. Once you select your facility, you will be routed to a nurse in our Pre-Surgery Testing departments, who will evaluate your symptoms or exposure, schedule you for a COVID-19 test, and inform your surgeon.

If you get a voice mailbox when you call, please leave a detailed message, including your name, date of birth, location of surgery, and date of surgery, and a nurse will call you back either the same day or the following day.

Prompts on the Symptom Hotline will fall under the five Hospital Campuses. If you are having a procedure at one of our outpatient surgery locations, please review the list below to determine which Hospital Campus you should select:

Atlanta: Northside Hospital Atlanta: Ground and Third Floor Surgery, Breast Care Surgery Center at the Women’s Center, Meridian Mark Outpatient Surgery Center, Midtown Outpatient Surgery Center, Peachtree Dunwoody Outpatient Surgery Center, Sandy Springs Outpatient Surgery Center, Tower Outpatient Surgery Center, Alpharetta Outpatient Surgery Center, Decatur Urology Outpatient Surgery Center

Easy, Convenient Pre-Surgical Assessments

Your time is important, so our team at Northside Hospital provides convenient options for your pre-surgery planning. We offer your pre-surgical assessment over the phone, allowing you to complete your health history and receive essential pre-surgical guidance at your convenience from your home or office.

Part of our pre-surgery planning also includes checking your overall health, making sure you are ready for surgery and optimal recovery. If any pre-surgical testing is required to verify your overall wellness, such as EKG heart monitoring, blood work or an anesthesiologist consult, we’ll help schedule these tests or appointments at one of our convenient locations.

Strong Communication Is Part of the Healing Process

At Northside Hospital, our job is to not only reassure you about the surgery plan but keep your family informed during your procedure. Our Surgical Pager System keeps everyone in the loop, so while you are in surgery, pagers are given to family members to keep them updated on your progress and your discharge status. 

We’ll make sure you have all the information you need on your post-surgery care and are always available for any questions throughout your recovery. Our goal is your goal – take expert care of your surgical needs and help you through recovery and on to improved wellness – as soon as possible.
