Outpatient Surgery Center

The Outpatient Surgery Center on the East Campus of The Villages® Regional Hospital specializes in same-day surgical procedures that allow patients to recover in the comfort of their own home instead of staying overnight in the hospital.

The Outpatient Surgery Center facility includes 4 sophisticated operating suites and procedure rooms, where a variety of surgeries are performed. These include cataract procedures; retina replacement; podiatry cases; dermatology procedures; pain management cases; plastic surgery; orthopedic surgeries, such as partial knee replacements; and more.

Patients at the Outpatient Surgery Center pay an average of 30 percent less than those having the same surgery in a hospital setting. Plus, they are discharged the same day as their procedure or surgery, getting them home quickly to rest and recover completely.

Robotic surgery

Building on its reputation as a leader in clinical care, The Villages® Regional Hospital was among the first in the nation to bring the benefits of the new da Vinci Xi Surgical System to patients.

Robotic-assisted surgery is a breakthrough technology that allows the surgeon's hand to make extremely precise movements, revolutionizing minimally invasive surgeries and procedures.

The surgical system cannot be programmed; every surgical maneuver must be performed with direct input from the surgeon. That's what the da Vinci® Xi Robotic Surgical System is all about: helping experienced, board-certified surgeons do what they do best—with even greater precision.
