What is an Ambulatory Surgical Center?

An ambulatory surgery center, also known as an ASC, is a modern facility that provides a safe, fully-operational space for same-day surgical care. An ambulatory surgical center hugely improves the patient experience for outpatient procedures. 

Our ambulatory surgery center does not require hospital admission and is more cost effective, convenient, and safe than a stay at the hospital, causing far less stress for patients. Our space is private and comfortable and includes everything needed for your surgical procedure, including state-of-the-art technology and equipment.

What to Expect at Our Ambulatory Surgery Center

Our ambulatory surgery center is a free-standing facility with state-of-the-art operating rooms designed for procedures that allow you to recover comfortably at home once the anesthesia has worn off.

The ambulatory is a professional space that is quiet, calm, and comfortably relaxed. You will experience a personalized, higher quality of care in a convenient setting. Once the procedure is complete, you will likely remain in the recovery space for 1-3 hours as the anesthesia wears off and you’re feeling ready to leave.

Before you go home with a friend or family member, we will check to ensure your vitals are stable and you can walk well on your own.

Can my Surgery be done at the Ambulatory Surgical Center?

Most patients can have their bariatric surgery performed at our ambulatory surgical center. However, if you’ve had a bad reaction to anesthesia in the past or are a high risk patient with serious medical issues, it may be best to have your procedure in a hospital.We will assess your risk category ahead of time, during your consultation. 

If you are in good enough health generally, it’s likely you’ll be able to have your surgery in our ambulatory surgical center instead of the hospital. The majority of our patients are eligible for this option and prefer to recover at home, and are able to do so safely without complications or issues.

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 hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.

I am totally comfortable in my own skin.
