What Is Office-Based Surgery? 


Office-based surgery is a form of outpatient surgery, where the procedures are performed in the physician’s office rather than at a hospital or an ambulatory surgery center, which is a healthcare facility that focuses on same-day surgical care, diagnostics and preventative procedures. Office-based surgery is more private, convenient, and comes with

  1. A Controlled Environment:  Office-based surgery suites are designed to meet strict safety standards and include the use of safety features, like increased natural lighting and ventilation systems, to help reduce exposure to airborne pathogens. Additionally, our OBS staff are well-trained in hospital protocols on infection control and patient safety, giving our patients an added level of reassurance.
  2. The Option of Surgery With No IV:  With OBS facilities, the option to have local or topical anesthesia administered is available, allowing you to undergo your surgery without the need for an IV. This can be beneficial for patients who have a fear of needles, those who have difficulty with sedation, or those who are on medications that don’t allow for IV sedation.  This ensures that all our patients have flexibility in their anesthetic options, eliminating added stress or discomfort.
  3. Flexible Scheduling: Our ophthalmologists have more control over schedule density than in a traditional hospital settings, providing patients with greater flexibility and choice in their appointment schedule. This ensures that our patients can prioritize their health in a way that fits into busy schedules.

OBS is designed to minimize this uncertainty by offering patients the opportunity to stay close to home throughout their entire process.
