DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — On January 11, DuPage Medical Group (DMG) — the largest independent, multi-specialty physician group in Illinois — opened a state-of-the-art Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) dedicated to providing outpatient orthopaedic and spine surgical procedures.
DMG’s musculoskeletal program continues to innovate in a value-based care environment by offering patients the ability to have advanced surgical procedures in an outpatient setting, which can be beneficial in many ways. Not only do patients go home the same day of surgery, but there can also be decreased risk of infection, surgery times can be shorter and recovery time is often quicker for the patient when compared to the same surgical procedure performed in a hospital setting.
“Now more than ever, patients want the best surgical care possible, performed by a provider they trust, in a safe environment,” said Anthony Romeo MD, Executive Vice President, DMG Musculoskeletal Institute. “Our new orthopaedic and spine surgery ASC allows us to provide a more personalized, streamlined and comfortable surgical care experience for our patients.”
At the Westmont surgical center, outpatient joint replacement of the hip, knee, shoulder and elbow; spine surgeries such as microdiscectomy, laminectomy, anterior cervical discectomy and stabilization (ACDS) procedures; and advanced surgical procedures related to sports medicine, upper extremity and the shoulder/elbow will be performed.
“We’re excited to bring this very innovative surgical care model to our patients and community,” said Steve Nelson, DMG Chief Executive Officer. “This new surgical center is consistent with our ambition to be a leader in delivering next-level outpatient care, a best-in-class patient experience and the best possible health outcomes.”
