State of the Art ASC

latest-technologyThe Southeastern Spine Institute has South Carolina’s only Ambulatory Surgery Center dedicated specifically to spine health.

Over 94% of back patients NEVER need surgery, but for those who do, it is a comfort to know that they can trust Southeastern Spine to have all the latest technologies in spine medicine in their own in-house out-patient surgery center. It is just one more way The Southeastern Spine Institute is always one step ahead.

Using our state-of the-art ASC, skilled physicians perform outpatient services including less invasive surgical procedures and blocks.

In our in-house surgery center, patients are not required to check into a hospital and can go home the same day. Outpatient surgeries usually have less blood loss for quicker recovery times and without a hospital stay you have much less chance for infections, this means you can get back to your normal life as soon as possible. In addition, avoiding hospitalization can result in huge cost savings, typically 50%.

latest-technology-2These days, saving money on health care is very important, but for you the patient, what is just as important is that The Southeastern Spine Institute’s surgery center delivers High Quality Care, Comfort and Results for their patients.

Often patients that need surgery have already been to Southeastern Spine to see their doctor, get non-surgical treatments or visit the physical therapist, so when minimally invasive surgery is required, coming back to familiar settings just makes sense. The patient already knows and trusts our professional staff.

The Southeastern Spine Institute’s ASC was designed by noted surgeons Dr. Don Johnson and Dr. Steve Poletti to address issues specific to patients with spine problems.
