Welcome

Welcome to Centennial Lakes Surgery Center.  We have provided quality surgical care to thousands of patients for over 25 years.  Our skilled medical staff is dedicated to making certain your surgical experience is as personal and comfortable as possible.  Our philosophy is to care for our patients as if they were our family members.  It would be our pleasure to welcome you into our patient family.


WHY CHOOSE TO HAVE YOUR SURGERY IN AN AMBULATORY SURGERY CENTER (ASC)?

ASC’s are able to provide high quality surgery at a lower cost than hospitals.  According to Medicare data, patients who have their surgery in an ASC pay an average 41% less than patients having the same surgery in a hospital.  This savings results in less out of pocket expense to our patients.  This can make a necessary or elective surgery much more affordable during these difficult economic times.
