ASC Q&A

What is an ASC?

An ambulatory surgery center (ASC) specializes in same-day, outpatient surgical care and offers a convenient alternative to hospital-based procedures that often require overnight stays. Modern techniques and anesthetics allow your surgeon to perform procedures that traditionally require overnight care in an outpatient setting. This allows you to leave the same day as your procedure and recover in the comfort of your own home. 

If you require surgery, Perimeter Orthopaedics, PC gives you access to Perimeter Outpatient Surgical Associates (POSA), an advanced, on-site surgery center accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). As an accredited ambulatory surgery center, POSA adheres to a strict set of protocols and procedures to ensure the safety and success of each procedure.

What are the benefits of an ASC?

There are many benefits to having your procedure at an ambulatory surgery center. ASCs operate on a much smaller scale than hospitals, with fewer physicians and staff schedules to coordinate. This makes it easier for you to schedule your appointment and reduces the chances of your surgery getting bumped for an emergency procedure. 

Perimeter Outpatient Surgical Associates is a specialized facility that focuses on orthopedics. Unlike hospital staff that typically attend to a wide range of needs, the physicians, nurses, and staff at POSA are committed to your specific orthopedic needs. This level of specialized care leads to smoother procedures and faster operative times. 

Having your procedure at an ASC can also reduce your risk of complications. Because POSA sees fewer patients and has fewer medical personnel than hospitals, your risk of infection is significantly reduced.
