What is an orthopedic ambulatory surgery center?

An orthopedic ambulatory surgery center (OAS) is a dedicated facility that is designed to provide outpatient orthopedic surgical care. OASs are fully equipped to handle a range of procedures, from simple surgeries like arthroscopic shoulder repairs to complex joint replacements. They can handle a wide variety of orthopedic conditions and minor problems such as tendon tears or sprains. Lowcountry Orthopaedics Surgery Center is owned and operated by experienced orthopedic surgeons who are experts in sports medicine, total joint replacement, spine, pain management, foot and ankle, and hand specialties.

Benefits of an orthopedic ambulatory surgery center

One of the main benefits of an OAS is that it offers shorter wait times for surgery than a hospital. This can be incredibly valuable for people who have been waiting for months for surgery. Our Surgery Center is proud to tout higher patient satisfaction and better outcomes than in-patient hospital operating rooms. In addition, outpatient surgery centers have lower infection rates and fewer complications than hospitals. This is because they are designed specifically for outpatient orthopedic surgery with less risk of hospital-incurred infections. Lowcountry Orthopaedic Surgery Center employs the latest in medical technology, uses sterile operating rooms, and follows strict infection control protocols. OASs also offer financial benefits. They provide more cost-effective care for both insurance-covered procedures and elective procedures that are not covered by insurance.

OASs also offer more convenience than a hospital. Patients do not need to be admitted to the hospital and can go home after their procedure. This can greatly reduce the cost, the amount of time spent at the hospital, and the amount of recovery time needed.

The benefits of an orthopedic ambulatory surgery center are clear. Offering shorter wait times, lower infection rates, lower costs, less recovery time, and more convenient care are among the benefits of an outpatient surgery center.
