How Do I Know if a Surgery Center is Right for Me?

May 22, 2016

There are many things to consider when searching for the right surgery center. Everyone is different, and it is important that you pick a place that makes you feel comfortable!


Here are some questions you can ask yourself before taking the leap:

Does this facility make me feel “at home?”

Compassion is essential in any surgery center. Getting a joint replacement surgery can be intimidating, make sure you have a good relationship with the staff. No one wants to have a surgery in a place they don’t feel welcome in.

Does this facility listen to my concerns and questions?

Respect is the golden rule. Healthcare professionals should be active listeners, genuine, and attentive. If you feel like your voice isn’t being heard, that facility probably isn’t the best choice for you.

Does this facility have updated practices and modern technology?

Quality factors into how you feel about the surgery/facility in general. Does it meet your standards? Do they progress with the practices? The surgery center of your choice should be a place you feel confident and secure in!

Midwest Specialty Surgery Center (MSSC) is located on the first floor of Midwest Center for Joint Replacement. The Surgery Center was designed with the patient’s experience as a top priority. They have 9100 square feet of space and 2 state-of-the-art Operating Rooms with advanced infection control systems, a minor procedure room, x-ray suite, and 8 private recovery suites that patients are admitted to for their entire perioperative stay at MSSC. They specialize in outpatient joint replacement care and focus on a rapid recovery.

Midwest Specialty Surgery Center’s number one concern for patients is that they feel comfortable, safe, and prepared throughout the process of surgery.
