I Need/Have an Upcoming Surgery or Procedure
My surgery/procedure was delayed due to COVID-19. When will it be rescheduled?
Rescheduling delayed surgeries and procedures is our top priority. If you have a surgery or procedure that was delayed due to COVID-19, you can expect to hear from your Keck Medicine health care provider very soon. If you have questions, please reach out to us at (800) USC-CARE (800-872-2273).
Some doctors are also starting to schedule preventive screenings such as mammograms and colonoscopies. Please consult with your doctor to decide the timing of any routine or annual exams and to make the decision that is right for you.
Some patients may be asked to take a COVID-19 test three days before undergoing certain procedures. Testing takes place at Keck Medicine screening tents, which are located at various Keck Medicine locations. For questions or more information, contact your health care provider.
Medically necessary, non-emergent elective surgeries and procedures will be performed at Keck Medical Center, USC Verdugo Hills Hospital (USC-VHH) and select ambulatory locations.
Which outpatient surgeries and procedures have been resumed?
Outpatient locations are resuming general surgeries and procedures, including orthopaedic, otolaryngology, gynecologic, breast, colorectal and spine.
Keck Medical Center is now extending its cardiac screening, mammogram and radiation oncology services.
USC-VHH is reopening its gastrointestinal lab for endoscopic procedures and is resuming geropsychiatric services with additional safety precautions.
