Webinar: Office-Based Surgery – In Current Times & Beyond
How can we better ensure the health and safety of staff and patients while providing the most personalized patient care? Is office-based surgery (OBS) a better solution for surgical practices in the future? In this webinar we discuss:
Is Office-Based Cataract Surgery Safe?
When considering office-based surgery for your practice, safety is the primary concern. Lance Kugler, MD of Kugler vision in Omaha, NE shares his findings on the safety of OBS for cataracts.
He built an accredited office-based surgery center with the same or better standards for eyes that an ASC requires. He shares data from a large study and compares to his own OBS data with similar outcomes.

Performing such procedures in an OBS setting can provide reassurance and a less stressful patient experience. Alison Tendler, MD explains how the environment she has created at ART Vision Center reduces patient anxiety.
