Where is the surgery done?
We do our outpatient surgery at a free standing outpatient surgical center rather than a hospital. The advantages of staying away from a hospital are lower infection rates, increased patient satisfaction and lower cost.
The surgical facility we use is Valley View Surgical Center in Las Vegas. I have many choices for such facilities but I take my patients to Valley View because they have by far the highest patient satisfaction of any facility I have ever used. Also they provide a very high quality and modern operating environment and all of the equipment I need to do my surgery exactly the way I prefer. They are not the lowest cost facility. For certian things it is important to spend a little more.
