What Is an ASC?
An ambulatory surgery center functions as an outpatient clinic for surgical patients. When patients visit an ASC, they are doing so for the exclusive purpose of attending an appointment for scheduled surgery. These surgeries are not complex in nature, and the appointments end with the patient being discharged on the same day after a period of rest.
Patients may stay for a few hours to recover from their surgery, but they do not sleep overnight at the facility. ASC surgeons are licensed, credentialed, and experienced practitioners in their fields, just like hospitals.
Which of Your Patients in Tampa Could Visit an ASC?
Patients who book non-life-threatening surgeries in advance — in other words, procedures that are not emergencies — could be good candidates for an ASC. Though ASCs are health clinics, they do not function as primary care offices. If a patient needs a wellness checkup or a prenatal exam, it’s best for them to contact a primary care practitioner or OBGYN.
What Services Does an ASC Provide?
ASCs provide several procedures and services for patients, and it’s important to help patients understand that ASC surgeons are just as credentialed as the surgeons in hospitals. An ASC is not a training center. An ASC can provide the following scheduled services and more:
- General surgery
- Gynecological surgery
- Orthopedic surgery
- Ear, nose, and throat surgery
- Eye surgery
If patients need an emergency visit, they should go to the local emergency room. ASCs do not offer urgent care or emergency care, childbirth services, or any type of regular “checkup” that may be may schedule at a primary care office. ASCs are primarily surgical clinics.
