Outpatient Surgery Center Q & A

What is an outpatient surgery center?

An outpatient surgery center is a highly specialized facility that has the ability to perform various procedures so you don’t have to go to the hospital. The team at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC have been dedicated to providing advanced medical and surgical care to the residents of the Metro Detroit area since 1999 and have a state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center so they can provide you with exceptional care.

What procedures are done at an outpatient surgery center?

The types of procedures performed at the outpatient surgery center at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC are ones that don’t require an overnight stay at the hospital. These types of procedures are sometimes referred to as outpatient or same-day surgeries.

Some of the minimally invasive procedures that may be performed at the outpatient surgery center include:

Epidural steroid injection

An epidural steroid injection is conducted to help reduce neck, back, arm, or leg pain. During the procedure, a corticosteroid and local anesthetic are injected into the epidural space of your spinal cord. This type of procedure requires the use of a special X-ray that allows your specialist to see in real-time the proper placement of the needle for your injection.

Stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

You may also require the use of the outpatient surgery center at Michigan Neurology Associates & PC if you’re receiving stem cell or PRP therapy. With stem cell therapy, the specialists harvest stem cells from your bone marrow to use as treatment. Stem cells are the blank cells in your body that have the ability to transform into specialized cells and can support healing when injected into diseased or damaged tissue.

Injections of PRP, which is a blood product that contains a concentrated source of platelets, growth factors, and specialized proteins, may also be done at the outpatient surgery center to ensure accuracy of the injection. The platelets, growth factors, and specialized cells in your PRP injection accelerate healing of diseased tissue.

Additionally, the specialists may be able to perform various spinal procedures at the outpatient surgery center.

Your specialist determines if you’re a good candidate for outpatient surgery based on your surgical need and medical history.
