Outpatient / Ambulatory Surgery

We have a passion to get you home quick! Our same-day surgery centers provide many surgical services and are cost effective. You can recover comfortably at home.

Also called same-day surgery, outpatient surgery is surgery that doesn’t require an overnight hospital stay. It is surgery that is more complicated than procedures that can be performed in a doctor’s office, but not complex enough to require a hospital stay.

Our same-day surgery centers are located in Walworth, Harvard, and Rockford provide many surgical services. Outpatient surgery at an ambulatory surgery center is cost effective. And patients have the benefit of recovering comfortably at home, which is where most people feel most comfortable. Most surgeries involve diagnostic procedures (such as colonoscopy), cosmetic surgery, eye surgery, pain management, urological surgery, orthopedic treatment and surgery, and other medical procedures.

What you should know about outpatient surgery

Outpatient surgeries can be performed in a hospital setting or an ambulatory surgery center.

According to the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association:

  • Ambulatory surgery centers are not rural health clinics, urgent care centers or ambulatory care centers that provide diagnostic or primary health care services.
  • Ambulatory surgery centers treat only patients who have already seen a health care provider and selected surgery as the appropriate treatment for their condition.
  • Ambulatory surgery centers are not physicians’ offices either. All ambulatory surgery centers must have at least one dedicated operating room and the equipment needed to perform surgery safely and ensure quality patient care.
