Surgery Center Advantages

Plastic surgeons in Indiana differ in whether or not they choose to perform surgery in a hospital or a surgery center. Dr. Garza believes the advantages of a surgery center are significant. It’s a smaller, more private setting where a patient’s needs can be attended to without the hectic pace often found in hospitals. Plus, performing plastic surgery at a surgery center is simply less expensive than in a hospital setting.

Dr. Garza also believes that the quality and safety of the surgical environment are very similar when comparing a surgery center and a hospital. The actual operating room environment is identical in a hospital and surgery center—the same level of equipment, personnel, instruments, and safety protocols. The only difference is that hospitals have rooms for overnight stays, while the surgery centers are strictly outpatient only. While outpatient surgery is extremely safe, a transfer protocol exists to relocate a patient to the nearest hospital facility if needed.
