What is Office Based Surgery?


Office-based surgery is any surgical or invasive procedure, utilizing minimal to moderate anesthetics, performed by a licensed physician in a location other than a hospital or ambulatory surgery center.  These procedures are typically performed in a suite located within the physician's office.  

The surgical parameters of procedures commonly performed in a office-based surgery suite include:  

  • Ability to safely perform surgical procedures on stable patients
  • Minimal to moderate sedation
  • Outpatient type procedures

The highest appropriate standard of patient care and safety is always paramount in office-based Surgery.

LASIK suites and most existing procedure rooms can be converted for office-based surgery. 


Office-based surgery seamlessly integrates clinic and surgery in one location providing patients a familiar and personalized premium surgical experience.  The surgeon realizes time savings and efficiencies when employing the same staff for clinic and surgery while eliminating segregated clinical surgery schedules.  As a result, doctors can see more patients during the day and increase their flexibility in responding to changes in patient flow and improving practice productivity.  Providing an optimal patient experience while safely performing appropriate surgical procedures within the office space delivers a higher level of patient satisfaction while reducing patient stress and anxiety associated with a surgery center.
