Our Surgery Centers

Dr. Gus Galante, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Indiana, performs over 90% of his plastic surgery procedures in three carefully chosen outpatient surgery centers. He prefers these surgery centers over a hospital setting because they offer the patient enhanced comfort and privacy, along with other benefits, without sacrificing safety.

Dr. Galante’s Surgery Centers of Choice

Dr. Galante prefers the following three surgery centers, all located in Northwest Indiana:

  • Lake Park Surgicare in Hobart is accredited by the Indiana State Board of Health and the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). The AAAHC is the leading accreditor of ambulatory healthcare organizations.
  • Broadwest Specialty Surgery Center in Merrillville, IN, is a licensed, AAAHC-accredited outpatient surgical facility providing the highest quality medical care.
  • Lakeshore Surgicare in Chesterton is surveyed and accredited by the AAAHC.

Surgery Center Advantages

Plastic surgeons in Indiana differ in whether or not they choose to perform surgery in a hospital or a surgery center. Here’s Dr. Galante’s preference explained in his own words: “To me, the advantages of a surgery center are significant. It’s a smaller, more private setting where a patient’s needs can be attended to without the hectic pace often found in hospitals. Plus, performing plastic surgery at a surgery center is simply less expensive than a hospital setting.”

Dr. Galante also believes that the quality and safety of the surgical environment is very similar when comparing a surgery center and a hospital. “The actual operating room environment is 100% the same between a hospital and surgery center for my needs – same level of equipment, personnel, instruments, and safety protocols. The only difference I can see is that hospitals have rooms for overnight stays, while the surgery centers where I work are strictly outpatient only.” Dr. Galante makes every patient’s safety a paramount priority. While outpatient surgery is extremely safe, a transfer protocol exists to relocate a patient to the nearest hospital facility if the need arises.
