Surgery of any kind brings with it a certain amount of anxiety—even for the in-and-out experience of same-day surgery. The UI Ambulatory Surgery Center brings together a health care team that offers dedicated, patient-focused care to help alleviate that anxiety.

The physicians and staff work to ensure that your experience is as comfortable and convenient as possible. We feature:

  • One-stop, streamlined registration, on site in our new center
  • Pagers for family members to allow you to meet with the surgeon as soon as your loved one's procedure is completed
  • Separate pediatric admission and waiting areas
  • Private rooms for pre-operative and recovery care
  • Periodic follow-up phone calls and care advice after your discharge

Our surgery team includes physicians, nurses, and anesthesiologists who are specially trained to use state-of-the-art technology for outpatient surgical care.

The surgery center services include:

  • Ear, nose and throat procedures, such as ear tubes, tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies, and plastic surgery
  • Urologic procedures, such as bladder examinations and biopsies

Our surgery center includes:

  • Ten operating rooms with state-of-the-art technology, including integrated imaging and communications
  • Extra large preparation and recovery area with private rooms for families
  • Separate pediatric lounge, complete with internet access
