Ambulatory Surgery Centers were developed over 30 years ago as innovative facilities where patients could have surgery performed in a safe and comfortable setting that does not require an overnight stay. The most common procedures, such as cataract removal, colonoscopy, and knee arthroscopy, are now performed in surgery centers.

Patients have embraced the high quality, safe, and efficient services provided in surgery centers. Over 1.4 million surgeries were performed in Texas ASCs in 2013. A study found that Texas ASCs had an estimated economic impact of $1.7 billion on the 2009 economy, employed over 7,300 Texans, and paid $424 million in 2009 taxes.

Founded in 2003, the Texas Ambulatory Surgery Center Society serves as the surgery center industry’s public policy advocate.
