Five-star operation

April 2010

In addition to state-of-the-art clinics and diagnostic imaging, the Medical Arts & Research Center (MARC) now offers outpatient surgery.

The Day Surgery Center, which opened in December, boasts four operating rooms, two endoscopy suites and "impressive technology," said Lee A. Carlisle, M.D., an anesthesiologist and medical director for the day surgery centers at both the MARC and the Cancer Therapy & Research Center.

That technology is instantly visible. The Day Surgery Center has high-definition capabilities to support laparoscopies and endoscopies. All images displayed in an operating room are controlled from a nurse's station by touch screen. The center occupies the entire second floor and offers a private elevator with a separate entrance for surgery patients.

Another benefit: Because the ambulatory surgery center serves an academic medical practice, it offers a full range of surgical specialties.

The Day Surgery Center is one more way the MARC caters to patient convenience. Patients can see their primary care doctors, consult with specialists, get laboratory work and diagnostic testing done, and have an outpatient procedure all in one building.

To schedule an appointment or to refer a patient to a UT Medicine San Antonio physician, call (210) 450-9000. Or, visit www.utmedicine.org for more information.
