The Surgery Center at Edgewater

About the Surgery Center

An Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) is a facility where surgeries that do not require a hospital admission are performed. Patients who elect to have surgery at our ASC arrive the day of the procedure, have the surgery in an operating room, and recover under the care of a nursing staff, all without hospital admission. 

At the Surgery Center at Edgewater, we focus our attention on making your outpatient experience as pleasant as possible. Our facility is accessible to persons with disabilities. Our staff and your surgeon combine advanced equipment with compassion to provide you with quality care in a supportive environment. Your personal comfort and rapid recovery are our priority. We offer a wide variety of outpatient procedures based on the latest evidence based practices. This includes, but is not limited to: cosmetic, ENT, general, oculoplastics, ophthalmology (including cataract), orthopedic surgery (including total joints), spine surgery, podiatric, and pain management procedures.

The Surgery Center at Edgewater is committed to providing quality surgical care in an outpatient environment. We provide a variety of surgical outpatient procedures including orthopaedic, gynecologic, cosmetic, and general surgery.

As an affiliate of Lancaster Medical Center, The Surgery Center at Edgewater strives to be a place where technology and skilled professionals come together to provide compassionate, customer-focused care. We work hard every day to be a place of healing, caring, and connection for patients and families in the Lancaster community.

How Are We Different From a Hospital?

Because a hospital must be staffed and equipped to treat all types of medical problems, it provides a much broader range of services than your current needs require. Since The Surgery Center at Edgewater is designed exclusively for outpatient surgery, we are able to offer patients a convenient, comfortable, and generally less costly alternative to the hospital.

Our warm surroundings and increased level of individual attention minimize the stress often associated with surgery. Patients are released within hours of surgery to complete recovery in the comfort of their own homes. Our pleasant atmosphere and special attention are particularly helpful in easing the fears of children who are scheduled for surgery.

How Are We Similar to a Hospital?

The Surgery Center at Edgewater is similar to a hospital in three respects:

  1. Your surgeon is supported by a highly skilled team of registered nurses and medical technicians specially trained in surgical and recovery care.
  2. Our surgical suites are equipped with sophisticated monitors and highly technical equipment and instrumentation.
  3. The standards of care required by Medicare and surgical governing bodies are strictly adhered to by The Surgery Center at Edgewater.
