Midtown Surgical Center, LLC Is Accredited by Academy of Ambulatory Foot and Ankle Surgery and certified by Georgia Department of Human Resources and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Ambulatory surgery, sometimes called outpatient surgery or same day surgery means you will go home the same day as your procedure. An increasing number of operations are being performed in which the patient does not have to stay overnight in the hospital. This is primarily due to improvements in medical technology and equipment. In addition, you will be able to recover in the comfort of your own home.
