Meadow Lake Surgery Center Operating Room

 

Sometimes, it is easy to forget what a huge advantage having our own ambulatory  surgery center is for our patients.  So, in the spirit of David Letterman, here are…

TOP 10 REASONS WHY HAVING YOUR SURGERY AT  MEADOW LAKE SURGERY CENTER IS GOOD CHOICE

  1. Meadow Lake Surgery Center (MLSC) is a Medicare Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center.  It is inspected and  must meet the same high safety standards as a hospital for the procedures offered.

  2. MLSC is more private than a hospital or large surgery center.

  3. MLSC is conveniently located in the same building as Dr. Wigod’s clinic office.

  4. MLSC respects your or your family’s time with streamlined check in and check out procedures.

  5. Unlike the hospital, you will not receive an additional bill from MLSC for your non-insurance covered surgery if it takes longer than planned.

  6. As an ambulatory surgery center, MLSC insurance charges are typically 60% or less than the hospital, so you may pay less co-insurance for your procedure.

  7. At MLSC, Dr. Wigod will have an assistant who works with him frequently and has the expertise to optimize the procedure.

  8. MLSC nurses provide attentive one on one specialized pre-operative care, recovery, and post-operative teaching.

  9. MLSC Anesthetists are especially skilled in outpatient care to maximize your comfort and speed your recovery.

  10. In case of emergency, MLSC is located less than ¼ mile from St. Luke’s Meridian Medical Center.
