Ambulatory Surgery Center

We Provide Top Care at Our Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC)

Washington Orthopaedic Center physicians work with the newest technology and equipment, using the most current techniques in orthopedic surgery at the Ambulatory Surgery Center.

What is an ASC?

Ambulatory surgery centers (also known as ASCs) are health care facilities that offer same day surgical care. Our ASC focuses on orthopedic procedures. ASCs have grown in popularity because they are a convenient alternative to the hospital setting.
