Dr. Worthing performs all surgical procedures at TOPS Surgical Specialty Hospital which is licensed and accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
TOPS features state of the art equipment and the best personnel available in the industry. You will notice a friendly and professional atmosphere when you arrive at TOPS, which is located adjacent to Dr. Worthing's professional building. Their staff, like ours, is devoted to the individual needs of each patient it serves.
Dr. Worthing is assisted by TOPS' registered nurses and board certified anesthesiologists. After surgery, each patient is in a fully equipped recovery room, attended by registered recovery room nurses until they are ready to go home which is typically an hour or two after surgery. While problems rarely occur, the center is fully equipped with all the necessary staff and equipment to care for a patient who has an unexpected complication. Our staff is also trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
If patients want to spend an additional night or two in the hospital for round the clock care, TOPS has recently renovated a wing of the hospital to accommodate that request. Rooms have a warm and home like feel yet have round the clock care to make your first few days of transition the most care free and comfortable they can be.
All patients continue to get Dr. Worthing's personal attention once they go home to include instructions regarding diet, rest and medications. If more questions arise while they are recovering at home they are encouraged to call Dr. Worthing's office directly.
