Surgical FAQ's - Outpatient CareCenter
Why is my procedure being performed at the Outpatient CareCenter, instead of a hospital?
For certain procedures, your orthopaedic surgeon may operate at our affiliated surgical location — Outpatient CareCenter. This dedicated facility is an ambulatory surgery center (ASC), providing high-quality outpatient procedures that don’t necessarily need to be performed in a full hospital. This may mean a shorter admission procedure and quicker release once you’re ready to go home, giving you a more convenient, overall experience.
