Our Surgery Centers

Dr. Gus Galante and Dr. Rebecca Garza, board-certified plastic surgeons in Indiana, perform over 90% of their plastic surgery procedures in 4 carefully chosen outpatient surgery centers. They prefer these surgery centers over a hospital setting because they offer the patient enhanced comfort and privacy, along with other benefits, without sacrificing safety.

Our Surgery Centers of Choice

Our surgeons prefer the following 4 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.
  • Community Surgery Center in Munster is accredited by The Joint Commission, confirming it meets the highest quality standards of patient care.

Surgery Center Advantages

Plastic surgeons in Indiana differ in whether or not they choose to perform surgery in a hospital or a surgery center. Our surgeons believe 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 and Dr. Garza also believe that the quality and safety of the surgical environment are very similar when comparing a surgery center and a hospital. The actual operating room environment is 100% the same as a hospital and surgery center for our surgeons’ needs—the same level of equipment, personnel, instruments, and safety protocols. The only difference they see is that hospitals have rooms for overnight stays, while the surgery centers where they work are strictly outpatient only. Our surgeons make 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.
