Ambulatory Surgical Centers and Why They Matter To You

Imagine having a weight-loss procedure and being able to sleep in your own bed the same night - no hospital stay required. It’s possible at one of New York Bariatric Group’s specialized Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASC).

What is an Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC)?

An ASC is a modern healthcare facility designed exclusively for same-day surgical procedures. ASCs are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed by highly trained medical professionals to provide patients with a comfortable and efficient alternative to traditional hospital-based surgery.

Benefits of Ambulatory Surgical Centers

  • Go Home the Same Day: Overnight stays are not required for ASC-eligible procedures. Patients have their medical procedure and leave the same day after recovery and return to the comfort of their own home.
  • Dedicated Staff: Your care team is trained and focused solely on the procedures that NYBG offers. Patients will not only receive the best care from expert providers while at the ASC, but they will be surrounded by those who truly care about the continued weight-loss journeys of each patient.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Compared to hospital-based surgery, ASC procedures typically incur lower expenses for both patients and insurers. By focusing solely on outpatient care, ASCs streamline operations, which translates into savings for patients without compromising on quality.
  • Reduced Infection Risk: ASCs adhere to rigorous infection control protocols. In contrast to a hospital setting, outpatient facilities have fewer patients, automatically reducing the likelihood of contracting diseases. This setting offers a lower-risk alternative to hospital stays and provides peace of mind for patients seeking surgical care.
  • Fully-Equipped Facilities: ASCs are equipped with advanced medical technology and state-of-the-art equipment. From cutting-edge operating rooms to comprehensive recovery areas, ASCs provide everything necessary for a successful surgical experience in a comfortable and convenient setting.
  • Convenience and Accessibility: ASCs offer unparalleled convenience and accessibility for patients. ASCs eliminate the hassle of navigating large hospitals and parking garages, allowing for a stress-free experience from start to finish.

What to Expect at Our Ambulatory Surgery Center

When you choose one of New York Bariatric Group’s ASCs for your surgical needs, you can expect a personalized, high-quality experience at every step. Our three free-standing facilities boast state-of-the-art operating rooms and recovery areas designed to facilitate a smooth and comfortable recovery process. Here's what you can expect during your visit:

Professional and Welcoming Environment: Our ASCs provide a professional yet relaxed environment for surgical care. From the moment you arrive, you'll be greeted by our friendly staff and guided through each step of the process with care and attention to detail.

Recovery Period: After completing your procedure, you'll spend time in one of our dedicated recovery spaces. During this time, our medical team will monitor your vital signs and ensure you're ready to safely return home with a friend or family member.

Assessment and Consultation: Before scheduling your surgery at one of our ASCs, we'll conduct a thorough assessment of your health and medical history to determine your eligibility for outpatient surgery. While most patients are suitable candidates for ASC procedures, we'll work closely with you to ensure the best possible outcome based on your individual needs.

Thomas' success story

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.
