JENNIE STUART AMBULATORY SURGERY CENTER
At the Jennie Stuart Ambulatory Surgery Campus (JSASC), we focus our attention on making your outpatient experience as pleasant as possible. Our highly trained staff and your surgeon or physician combine state-of-the-art equipment and compassion to provide you with consistent, high-quality care in a supportive environment. Your personal comfort and rapid recovery are our highest priorities.
An Ambulatory Surgery Campus (ASC) is a facility where surgeries that do not require a hospital admission are performed. Patients who elect to have surgery at an ASC arrive the day of the procedure, have the surgery in an operating room, and recover under the care of nursing staff, all without hospital admission.
The JSASC is qualified to provide a variety of the most sophisticated, outpatient surgical and diagnostic procedures, including:
|Laser Cataract Surgery
