Since 1994, the Spartanburg Surgery Center physicians and staff have been dedicated to serving the surgical needs of patients from Spartanburg and the surrounding communities of upstate South Carolina. In 2010, we opened our new 9,000 square foot facility, which includes four operating rooms and two procedure rooms.
Same day surgical treatments – The Spartanburg Surgery Center is a licensed ambulatory surgical center, approved by both federal and state agencies. This means that our patients are able to return home the same day that they receive surgical treatment. Outpatient procedures provide greater efficiency, convenience and lower cost. Surgical patients are able to recuperate at home in a comfortable and familiar environment.
Urologic surgery – At our new, state-of-the-art, multi-specialty surgery center, our patients receive accurate diagnosis and treatment for a variety of both urologic and orthopedic conditions.
Examples of some common urological procedures we perform:
- Cystoscopy – In this procedure, the physician uses a thin tube containing light and lenses, like a microscope, to examine or conduct surgical procedures on the inside of the bladder and urethra.
- Ureteral stent placement – In this procedure, a thin tube is inserted into the ureter to prevent or treat the obstruction of urine flow from the kidney.
- ESWL (Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy) – This is a modern, minimally invasive procedure that breaks up kidney stones with a powerful sound wave produced outside the body by a lithotriptor machine. The tiny pieces of the shattered stones can then be passed more easily out of the body.
- Circumcision and vasectomy – Both are minor surgical procedures. A circumcision removes some, or all, of the foreskin of the male penis. During a vasectomy, a man’s vas deferens tubes are cut, then tied and sealed to prevent sperm from entering the seminal stream. It is generally performed as a means of birth control.
- TRUS & BX (Trans rectal ultrasound and biopsy of the prostate) – Minor surgical procedure to determine the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
