Southern Surgery Center

Patients and their families enjoy the personal care they receive in a relaxed, friendly environment thus creating a patient-doctor friendly atmosphere. Experienced, well trained staff and full time anesthesiologists are an integral part of ASCs. The convenience of decreased time spent waiting, early discharge, lower costs and decreased risk of nosacomial infections are positive aspects of these centers. Technological advances have greatly improved surgical procedures.

Family involvement and detailed instructions for post-op care, enable the patient to return to the highest level of pre-procedure activity possible. This team approach reduces anxiety and promotes well-being and decreases patient dependency.
