Ambulatory Orthopedic Surgery Centers
Outpatient Joint Replacement Surgery
Traditionally, joint replacement surgery is an inpatient procedure carried out in the hospital with a three- to four-night hospital stay. Improvements in surgical technique, as well as anesthesia, pain management, and joint replacement implant technology, have made it feasible for Coastal Orthopedics’ physicians and surgeons to perform these procedures as an outpatient procedure for select patients.
Our surgery centers at Pointe West and East Surgery Center offer same-day outpatient surgery and feature the latest in cutting-edge medical equipment and surgical devices to allow our physicians to perform the most effective techniques for each case. The surgery centers also feature dedicated rooms for our doctors to perform pain management procedures for chronic neck, back and joint pain.
Our trained and board-certified physicians are nationally-recognized experts, ensuring your surgery goes smoothly. Recovery at home is faster, safer and generally less expensive so you can get back to your life sooner.
Advanced Orthopedic Surgery Techniques
Advances in orthopedic surgical techniques have increased the number of surgical procedures that can be performed as outpatient surgery. Remarkably, this includes hip, knee and shoulder replacements.
It’s estimated that more than 500,000 knee, 250,000 hip, and 53,000 shoulder replacements are performed in the U.S. each year, most commonly because of arthritic or worn-out joints.
Can Hip and Knee Replacement be an Outpatient Surgery?
Same-day outpatient joint replacement is not for everyone. However, for the right candidates having a hip, knee or shoulder replacement procedure in an outpatient surgery center instead of the hospital has many benefits.
What are Some Common Outpatient Surgery Procedures?
Outpatient surgery procedures offered at Coastal Orthopedics:
- ACL reconstruction
- Carpal tunnel release
- Rotator cuff repair
- Trigger finger release
- Joint replacement
- Spine surgery
- Knee surgery
- And more
What are the Benefits of Outpatient Surgery?
At Coastal Orthopedics, we have two outpatient surgery centers. The benefits of an ambulatory surgery are:
- Less expensive: Having your surgery at our outpatient surgery center generally costs less than the same procedure at a hospital, where you must consider the cost of a hospital stay.
- Works around your schedule: At a hospital, scheduled surgery can be delayed by emergencies. At our outpatient surgery center, you can book your surgery and the procedure will be performed the day it is scheduled.
- More comfortable: Outpatient surgery is less stressful than inpatient surgery and the convenience of recovering in your home can make recovery time much easier for both you and your family.

Estimate of Charges
Personalized Estimates Prior to Admission
Upon request by the patient and before the provision of non-emergency care our facility provides a good faith estimate of reasonably anticipated charges for the treatment of the patient’s specific condition. This estimate will be provided within 7 business days of the request; however, patients should contact their insurer concerning cost-sharing responsibilities.
Patients and prospective patients may request from this facility and other health care providers a more personalized estimate of charges and other information. Patients and prospective patients should contact each health care practitioner who will provide services in the Surgery Center to determine the health insurers and health maintenance organizations with which the health care practitioner participates as a network provider or preferred provider.
Financial Assistance Arrangements or Charity Care
Financial Assistance Policy: The Surgery Center offers patients many options to reduce their financial responsibility for services rendered by our Surgery Center. Please contact our business office for more information on our financial assistance policies. Surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other service providers bill for their services separately from our facility and may have their own financial assistance programs.

Charity Care Policy: In an effort to assist low-income families and individuals, MASC offers discounted services to qualified applicants if they are unable to pay their financial liability costs for medically necessary care. Please contact the business office for more information on applying.
Care Credit is available for procedures performed at the Surgery Centers. This option allows monthly payments to be made to Care Credit. The Care Credit program information will be provided to the patient by the insurance department.
It is the patient’s responsibility to inform the Surgery Centers of their insurance information. If the information provided to the surgery is inaccurate, the patient may be held responsible for the balance of the procedure. The insurance verification department will call the patient to inform the patient of their financial responsibility for the procedure. Patients are responsible for understanding their insurance coverage and for paying their patient responsibility. The receptionist at the Surgery Center will confirm the insurance information obtained by the physician’s office. The patient will be asked to review and sign a Demographic Form stating the information is correct. The Surgery Center will bill the provided insurance policies as a courtesy. Any outstanding monies due after the patient’s insurance carrier has paid and deemed patient responsibility will be billed to the patient. The patient will receive a preliminary statement 7 days after the procedure has been performed and will also receive a statement generated on a monthly basis.
Patients are expected to pay their financial liability on or before the day of service. We offer 90-day payment plans with half of the balance due at time of service and the remaining balance must be paid within 90 days of the procedure. If the account is not paid after the third monthly statement has been mailed, the Surgery Center will contact the patient in order to collect payment in full. If payment in full is not made within 24 hours, the collector will forward the account to the Billing Office Manager for review and approval to be referred to an outside collection agency. If you are unable to meet this financial liability, please contact the business office for more information
For patients with non-government insurance coverage, we may offer a discount for full payment of your estimated financial liability on or before the day of service.
