Unfortunately, Idaho has seen an unprecedented rise in Coronavirus-19 cases this November, and the rates of infection and hospitalization in southern Idaho are rising rapidly.
In response, St. Luke's Regional Medical Center, has suspended most elective surgery cases effective Nov 16. Life threatening cases such as cancer surgeries are still proceeding for now. This elective surgery "pause" is unlikely to be lifted until 2021. Some simple surgeries that do not require an overnight stay are being permitted for now. We do not know when the majority of elective surgeries will be allowed again at St. Luke's-- much of this depends on if Idahoans can stop the rampant spread of the virus through our state. Hospital beds are being filled with victims of the virus, which means elective surgeries are not appropriate or possible.
Please do your part to STOP THE SPREAD by staying home when able, social distancing, washing your hands frequently, avoiding indoor gatherings, and most importantly, wearing a mask when in public. Our health care teams, our patients, and their families are relying on our community to be selfless and protect each other from this virus.
Our clinic is still open, though we are limited in what surgeries can be scheduled due to the pandemic.
When visiting our clinic:
- Must wear a mask at all times
- You may bring ONE support person with you. No children please.
- Routine postoperative or preoperative visits may be conducted via telehealth
If you are sick or have a possible Covid 19 exposure, please call us and postpone your appointment!
All waiting areas and exam rooms are being thoroughly disinfected between patients
If you are having surgery, you will be required to have a Covid 19 test about 48-72 hours prior to arrival at the hospital.
Please call our office to reschedule your appointment or surgery if you are feeling sick or are exposed to someone you suspect may have Covid-19.
GET BETTER, FASTER
Surgery is a necessarily part of modern medicine, and new advances have made patients' recovery safer and easier. At Huntington Laparoscopy, we have the latest knowledge and technology to address your surgical needs.
Drs. Huntington -- a father-daughter team of General Surgeons in Boise, Idaho -- specialize in advanced laparoscopic surgery. Major operations can be performed safely and successfully through a minimally invasive approach, which means patients have less pain, fewer complications, and get better faster.
When you arrive at Huntington Laparoscopy, you will be treated with courtesy and respect. At our downtown office, Drs. Huntington take the time to get to know you and your medical history. If you or a loved one needs an operation, we take the time to make sure you understand the procedure and expected recovery. We work with our out of town patients to minimize needless trips too.
Whether it's fixing a hernia or taking out a tumor, you or your loved one will have exceptional care. With decades of experience, scientific publications, and hard work, Huntington Laparoscopy brings competent and compassionate surgical care to Southern Idaho. We operate at St. Luke's Medical Center in downtown Boise and Treasure Valley Hospital in Boise.
Care doesn't end when a patient leaves the hospital. Drs. Huntington and their staff are there if and when patients and their families have questions. Patient-centered care is the norm at Huntington Laparoscopy. We take pride in taking care of our patients as if they were part of our family.
