In accordance with the highest standards for patient care and safety, Dr. Forley’s office-based ambulatory surgical suite is accredited by the Joint Commission. “The Joint Commission is an independent, not-for-profit organization that evaluates and accredits more than 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States.

Dr. Forley performs all surgeries himself in their entirety. Minimally invasive and minor surgical procedures can be carried out under local anesthesia. The Pro-Nox System is also available to help ease any discomfort or anxiety during your procedure with a self-administered combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide gases for analgesia. When it is advisable for you to be asleep for your procedure, Dr. Forley exclusively uses twilight anesthesia that is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist with medications given through the vein and does not involve placement of a breathing tube or mask over your face. The medications are rapidly metabolized by your body allowing for a speedy recovery with minimal side effects and discharge from the office after a period of careful monitoring by Dr. Forley and his nursing staff. If a surgical procedure requires general anesthesia, then it is performed at one of the hospitals Dr. Forley is affiliated with in New York City.
