Ambulatory Surgical Center FAQ

How does an Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) ensure quality?
ASCs and hospital outpatient departments operate similarly, and ASCs adhere to strict laws, procedures, and care standards to safeguard patient safety. ASCs have specific requirements, including maintaining a clean environment and implementing an infection prevention plan. They regularly evaluate the quality of care provided and report patient outcomes. A trained nurse must be available for emergency services while patients are present. Additionally, ASCs must have a transfer agreement with a local hospital for emergency patient transfers. Most ASCs are also Medicare-certified and must follow additional protocols, such as accurate patient documentation and physician-led safety evaluations before and after surgery.
What are the advantages of having spine surgery in an ASC?
ASCs offer various patient benefits, including providing care conveniently and comfortably without compromising quality. They utilize minimally invasive techniques, allowing quicker procedures and faster recovery times. Patients experience lower costs as overnight stays are minimal or not required, and ASCs prioritize strict infection control, with many achieving a 0% infection rate. However, it’s important to note that complex spine surgeries may be better suited for a hospital inpatient setting, especially for severe spinal deformities or patients with complex heart conditions or chronic diseases.
Recovering from anesthesia after surgery
The time it takes to wake up from anesthesia varies depending on factors such as metabolism, the type of anesthesia used, and the duration of administration during surgery. Following outpatient spine surgery, patients typically begin walking within hours with the assistance of nurses. Nausea and vomiting can be a result of the anesthesia, but these symptoms will diminish as the effects of the anesthesia fade away.
Pain management
Adequate pain control is a priority after outpatient spine surgery. It is normal to experience pain following any spine surgery, often caused by inflammation, muscle spasms, or general discomfort from body positioning during surgery. These symptoms gradually dissipate during the early stages of recovery. Pain management options, such as oral medication, will be discussed with the surgeon to ensure pain is under control before leaving the outpatient center.
Discharge instructions

Upon being cleared to leave the outpatient spine surgery center, patients receive detailed instructions for self-care at home. These instructions include medication schedules, bathing guidelines, spine precautions, incision care, braces (if necessary), and follow-up appointments. Spine precautions may involve restrictions on activities like climbing stairs, bending, or twisting at the waist, or lifting heavy objects, depending on the type of surgery. It is crucial to follow these instructions diligently, understanding that the recovery timeline varies for each patient. A positive attitude, a balanced diet, and ample rest can lead to faster recovery.

Driving Home
Make arrangements for someone to drive you home from the outpatient spine surgery center. Patients should avoid driving for at least the first 24 hours following surgery. Restrictions may also apply if taking medications, such as opioids, that can cause drowsiness or impair driving. Having someone stay with the patient during the initial day or two after surgery is advisable. The outpatient center staff can assist in making transportation arrangements if needed.
