Welcome to the Massachusetts General Hopsital Orthopaedic Ambulatory Center (ASC). We are pleased to be able to offer several of our outpatients surgical procedures at Mass General West in Waltham. Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality of Orthopaedic Care.
The Orthopaedic Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) at Mass General West houses four outpatient operating rooms, patient friendly pre- and post-operative care areas as well as large waiting rooms and other patient amenities. At the ASC, you will receive the same excellent care as you would on MGH's main campus in Boston, with the added convenience of free parking and easy access to many of the major routes surrounding Boston. The surgeons, nurses and anesthesia staff who care for you at the ASC are all members of the MGH staff.
Patients in our ASC will benefit from the quiet, private space during pre-operative preparation and during recovery. Since we are able to care for a smaller number of patients in this dedicated space, each patient receives highly personalized care before, during and after their procedure.
