Tips for Choosing the Best Surgery Center

ambulatory surgery center
Choosing an ambulatory surgery center is an important decision. With thousands of outpatient surgery centers nationwide, choosing the right one can be overwhelming. The key is to research your choices so you find a surgery center that fits your needs and provides quality care. Below is a list of factors to consider when selecting an outpatient surgery center:

1. Location: The surgery center should be within a comfortable travel distance. Surgeons typically have privileges at more than one ambulatory surgery center, so you may have more choices than you think. Ask you surgeon what centers they affiliate with so you can have a choice between facilities where to have your surgery or procedure. It may be worth the drive.

2. Services provided: Verify the surgery center can perform the specific surgery/procedure you need.

3. Insurance: Verify the surgical center takes your insurance.

4. Hours of operation: Surgery centers vary on days and hours they are open. Verify the surgery center can perform your surgery at a time that fits your needs.

5. Recommendations: Word of mouth recommendations can tell us whether we can get along with providers on a personal level. Ask friends, family, and other associates if they have had experiences with the outpatient surgery centers on your list.

6. Reviews: Research online reviews-they are a valuable resource. They can give you a better picture of whether patients received quality care at the surgical center.

7. Amenities: Those little things that make you more comfortable, or make it easier for you to have the surgery can make a big difference. Inquire what amenities the surgery center provides.
