Office-Based Surgery


NYC Office Based Surgery Attorney

The ability to perform office-based surgery is extremely valuable, not only from a financial standpoint, but from a patient care standpoint as well. By cutting the hospital out of the equation, money is saved by the patient, by the doctor and even by the insurance company. Perhaps more importantly, it allows the patient to be monitored more closely by the doctor.

In the past, the primary method of being authorized to perform office-based surgery was certification as an ambulatory surgical center (ASC). These certifications are available in limited quantities and are a challenge to obtain. Now, the law allows a new option: accreditation for office-based surgery.

At the law firm of Abrams, Fensterman, Fensterman, Eisman, Formato, Ferrara & Wolf, LLP, health law attorneys know how to work quickly to help medical practices become authorized to perform office-based surgery.
