Surgical Specialty Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania offers a spacious, up-to-date ambulatory surgery center. We welcome the surgeons of Kingston Surgery Center, who merged their center with ours in March 2016. Kingston Surgery Center has a long history in our community. It was the very first outpatient surgery center in Pennsylvania, built in 1984.
United, we form a team of experienced and highly skilled surgeons offering dentistry, ENT, general surgery, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pain management and podiatry. We are proud to be named a Cataract Innovator, one of less than twenty centers in the United States recognized for superior patient care.
Our patients have highly rated the care they have received from our doctors and staff and say they are likely to recommend our center for outpatient procedures. See what patients had to say.
